Dear Ms. Lastine:

This purpose of this memo is to notify you that your request dated January 3, 2014 appealing the rates for your Care and Treatment Programs for State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2014 has been approved. The calculated rates were used rather than the district-wide rate and were reflected in the March 19, 2014 calculation. However, based on the attached email the rates used for each site are reflected below.

Epsilon # 521 (appealed-calculated rate used),

New Connections # 526 (no rate calculated-no data),

Prairie Care Day Treatment # 530 (request to allow district-wide to be used),

Prairie Care Resident Care # 531 (request to allow district-wide to be used),

Prairie Care Edina # 532 (request to allow district-wide to be used) and

West Academy # 535 (request to allow district-wide to be used).

The rates for Omegon #522, Headway Academy #527, Sun #465, Sun Transition #471, Safe Program #479, Strive Secondary #480, Strive Transition #484 and CIP #486 are fine. We will monitor the rates for these sites and put in an appeal rate when needed.
