The Special Education environment is a dynamic and challenging one to operate in. In order for a school to continually increase its program and revenues, extensive and detailed financial planning and analysis is required. At Cerini and Associates we understand this and have the experience, expertise, and personnel to provide the quality service and support that our clients need. Our knowledge of key issues that affect special education schools goes far beyond tax laws and accounting procedures. We are specialists in reimbursement methodologies and cost report preparation. We provide insight and offer a different perspective on some of the issues that a special education school faces.
