Meeting to Discuss Service Disparities at WRC: PPT Slides and Live Recording

Remote and Alternative Service Delivery Town Hall Meeting 8-19-2020

August 17, 2020

To:  All Non-Residential Service Providers

From:  Mary Lou Weise-Stusser

Re:  Remote and Alternative Service Delivery Town Hall Meeting 8-19-2020

Over the last six months, WRC and our community have faced an ever changing world in which there are so many questions and far too few answers.  Another change is on the horizon and it is important that you review this correspondence carefully.

The Directive that allowed for retention funding under the State of Emergency will cease effective August 31, 2020.  DDS released Draft Emergency Regulations on August 14, 2020 establishing the requirements for Alternative Services Delivery.    All non-residential service providers who are providing Alternative Service delivery must complete a Self –Certification Document as well as a one page description of how you are providing services.  The documents can be completed by clicking on the link below: https://arsl.at/zfwel

Once you complete the Self-Certification and your one page service profile, click the completed button and it will be sent directly to WRC.  The link also allows you to save a copy for your records.  WRC is requesting the One Page Service Profile so that we may provide service coordinators the information that can be shared with families.

Please note, Remote and Alternative Services may not continue without the Self-Certification and one page Service Profile being completed in the link.

WRC will host a town Hall meeting on Wednesday August 19, 2020 from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM to review this process and to answer questions. Register for the Town Hall by clicking aquí.

Westside truly appreciates the creativity, dedication and perseverance during this COVID-19 Pandemic!
