Re-establish Signature Authority for Assistant Superintendent for Student Support Services
In July 2018, the responsibility for signing contracts related to the provision of special education services under M.G.L. Ch. 71B was shifted from the Assistant Superintendent for Student Services to newly established Executive Director of Special Education K-12 position. Due to an impending vacancy in the Executive Director position, the Assistant Superintendent for Student Services was reauthorized to enter into contracts, and this authority will continue indefinitely into the future, to provide for a secondary authorized signer in this area — the Executive Director of Special Education K-12 will continue to be the primary authorized signer.
