Summary: Jennifer Parenti is an independent service contractor, credentialed to teach students with qualifications for special education services in Deaf/Hard of Hearing for school-based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's). When Mt. Diablo Unified School District is not able to fill all open positions with district employees, the use of contract providers is necessary to ensure that we are in compliance with state and federal laws that govern special education. Jennifer Parenti is utilized to provide Deaf / Hard of Hearing services to ensure that all of our needed services are covered for the 2022-2023 school year. Mt. Diablo Unified School District Human Resources and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
