Service Provider Requests to Waive Staff Ratio Requirement

Achievement House Inc. (AHI) is requesting consideration of an AB 637/1543/1106 proposal to waive requirements around the ratio for 1:8 in an adult program per regulation. AHI's Activity Center's program design is intended to provide a new training model for individuals served in San Luis Obispo County. This program design represents a comprehensive approach to service delivery including a broad based curriculum that meets the diverse needs of the individuals.  AHI's intent with this new program design is to provide a stimulating and enriching environment for program participants. Training will include site based activities, community integration, social activities, daily living skills, job preparation and paid work. 

AHI's goal is to provide a model curriculum wherein individuals experience a wide range of social, vocational, physical, and development opportunities that are designed to meet individual goals and objectives as indicated in the Individual Program Plan (IPP) and the Individual Service Plan (ISP).  The individuals will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of classroom settings and pick a curriculum that meets their interest and needs.

The request for the program with a capacity of 60 is for a person served to staff ratio of 1:6 rather than 1:8.  AHI details are listed below.
