Granville, NY: 21% of students are SPED

August 1, 2017, Glen Falls, NY, Post Star: Granville school shuffles administrators Special education has been a focus for the district. The school board last week voted to hire David Mitchell as a consultant to review special education programs. Mitchell will be paid $450 a day for when he is working in the district and $75 per hour when he is working from home. He will prepare a report about the district’s programs and any recommendations to improve them. About 21 percent of Granville’s students receive special education services, which McGurl said is higher than the average. There is a maximum cap of $10,000 for Mitchell’s services.
