The Board authorized the president and secretary of the Board of Education to execute a settlement agreement to terminate the Grafton School’s lease at the former Montrose Elementary School. During the 2005-2006 school year, Grafton closed its program at the facility for financial reasons and asked to be released from its lease obligations. The Grafton program served adolescents with developmental disabilities, and a request for proposals is being developed with Department of Health and Human Services and County Council staff to identify a new provider of these services. Short-term placements were found for students who were enrolled in the Grafton School at the time of its closure.
