At the February 2019 Palo Alto CAC General Meeting, Lana Conaway (Assistant Superintendent of Strategic Initiatives and Operations) discussed her handout entitled “Special Education Programs and Services, 3-year Plan (2019-2022)”. The Plan is part of the PAUSD “Promise” and covers four objectives, and seven Key Performance Indicators (“KPI” metrics). First year costs are estimated or “TBD”, and should be discussed as part of the upcoming 2019/20 PAUSD Budget.
