The Bear Necessities


ECSE FER (Early Childhood Special Education Final Expenditure Report)

For all children on an IEP, we bill for the services we provided the previous year. This ECSE FER is due October 31st. I thought you might like to know a little about our numbers!

280 children with an IEP served in 2017-18 - this is down from previous years, this is due to our "SIS" Speech Improvement Services program.

$ 4,349,527.60 is the amount of money we will bill the State of Missouri for the services we provided to all students on an IEP.


On the CFMP webpage ( you can now see our “Informal Solutions” online survey high level results and the in-person feedback from Engagement Series II. We will continue to release key takeaways from our online feedback forms and open-ended survey questions as they are analyzed and logged.

Big picture

You Matter

Jeanie and I have had the absolute pleasure to observe classrooms and home visits this past few weeks. I am tearing up as I write this...this community has a treasure in YOU! This staff of 120 people, on a daily basis makes a significant impact on families and children. You lift them up, love them, meet them where they are, hold them accountable, set goals with them and give them grace. This school family is teaching our community what it means to empower each other.
