School districts have been in a crisis over the last several years in the recruitment and retention of qualified special education service providers. Regardless of a shortage, NCLB and IDEAIA federal regulations will continue to hold districts liable for providing services, but with such a shortage aggressive recruitment of qualified providers is difficult for some districts. Many districts are unable to offer incentives the market is mandating. Numerous districts have found a solution and are currently using and relying on contracting agencies to meet their needs.
