01-19-2016 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #19


Title
Waiver of Policy 9701

Discussion
Brevard Schools Foundation is working with Florida Prepaid College Board, a government agency, to help make families aware of the Florida Prepaid open enrollment period, which ends February 29. More than 35,000 brochures were printed to send home with students that did not include the disclaimer required by Board Policy 9701. Due to timing and expense, we are requesting a waiver to the policy, so that families have the maximum time remaining to learn about the program before the enrollment period ends. A copy of the brochure is attached.

Recommendation
Waive the printing requirements of Policy 9701 for the Florida Prepaid College Board brochure for Open Enrollment ending February 29, 2016.
