Recommendation #27 To: East Side Union High School District

To ensure that it can demonstrate that the contracted personnel who provide mental health services are qualified, East Side should annually obtain and retain copies of contractor personnel lists and the credentials or licenses for personnel who provide mental health services to students in the LEA.

60-Day Agency Response

Since this issue arose during the audit, we have instituted a process whereby the Administrative Assistant for the department secures copies of the credentials and/or licenses for the individuals who will provide mental health services to students in the LEA upon establishing the contract with the agency. This recommendation has been fully implemented.
