Ms. Janell Bullard, Director of Special Education
Meeker and Wright Special Education Cooperative (0938-52)
P.O. Box 1010, 801 Eighth Avenue
Dear Ms. Bullard:
Thank you for your letter of May 16, 2014 indicating that for State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2015 the students in Site 013 (STEP 18-21) should not be processed through the tuition billing system. According to your request, there is a combination of activities for these students including transition disabled and services provided by Wright Technical Center. Your request is approved because the tuition billing system would over-state the rates for special education and not invoice the districts appropriately for vocational-disabled services.
If you should have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Michelle Jones at 651-582-8577 or email to email@example.com.
George Holt, Supervisor

In addition to recognizing the unique potential of gifted and talented youth, seize the opportunity to laud the efforts of the parents, educators, counselors and psychologists with whom they work. Their sustained efforts, coupled with the organized advocacy of the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) and the Minnesota Educators of Gifted and Talented (MEGT), help make our state one in which gifted learners are honored and valued.
