Tree of Knowledge, one of the three third-party providers in Lakewood has today resumed providing services for the 2014-2015 school year, based on the letter of intent, a Board official confirms to TLS.
The vendor today provides nursing and shadows.
The other two vendors, which provide other services as well – including IDEA, Title 1 and 192 and 193 services, are still reviewing the contracts to ensure their services provided are properly covered and will receive reimbursement. They did not rely on the letter of intent provided by the BOE following the emergency meeting.
Until the contracts are finalized, the approximately 2,000 children will remain without services.
