Our Story

MSB was founded over 20 years ago to help schools access and maximize federal revenue available for Special Education. Built on personal experiences and knowledge from working at a rural school district, we recognized districts did not have the resources necessary to access the available Medicaid funds they deserved. The amount of work involved was not worth the time and effort involved in obtaining these funds. As a solution to this problem, MSB was created with a distinct purpose. Our Purpose is to lead the charge for the collection of educational documentation to discover and develop students. There is a direct correlation between services provided to Special Education students and reimbursements available to the district through the Medicaid to Schools program. Our team of consultants strives to serve your district as experts on all aspects of the program in order to ensure we fulfill our purpose. Our holistic approach empowers educators to do just what they were hired to do; spend more time with students!

Our Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles


 

Overcome Fear

We are keenly aware of what fear robs us from becoming. We imagine our wins, instead of wondering if we will lose. We find strength and safety in each other, which fuels our determination to be more. Failure, self doubt and pride are the enemy, and we strive to keep them at bay. We fight fear-based decisions and indecisions with truth. We are not constrained by our fears, because fears are only “what if’s”, not what will be.

We take responsibility for the methods of creating profit within our own sphere of influence.
