The high cost of general education and special education transportation is creating budgetary shortfalls in many districts, resulting in budget cuts to direct student services and resources. The Menta Group program models provide school districts with exceptional educational opportunities that bring students in public/private placements closer to the community in which they reside. As a result, transportation and educational costs decrease. By reducing the number of outside providers, district administrators will be able to increase efficiencies in oversight and supervision of private therapeutic school placements and services. Students will have access to community-based opportunities that improve the quality of their educational program and help prepare them for the future.
