RI RID Board met on May 14 to discuss proposed changes to the RICDHH MPA and Interpreter Referral Service Policies and Procedures. The Board came to consensus on the top three items we wanted to address. On behalf of the Board, I sent a letter to RICDHH and the Commissioners to share our concerns.
To summarize, the Board asked that the
1)BEI not be added to the MPA
2) the hierarchy of the MPA be restructured to reflect two categories, Certified and Screened
3) to postpone adding the Tier 1 and Tier 2 until further research can be done by the Board, together with RICDHH.
