Title
Consultant Agreement - Sherwood Elementary with Dr. Marty Hopkins

Discussion
Dr. Hopkins is an expert in the field of Elementary Math.  She has provided inservices for Brevard Public Schools in the past.  She will work with Sherwood Elementary faculty to assist with the implementation of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and the new math program.  Sherwood's math scores have fallen in the last few years and the school has not made Adequate Yearly Progress in the area of math for exceptional education and economically disadvantaged students.  The school hopes to provide better instruction aligned with the standards to assist the students to be more successful, increase Math FCAT scores and make AYP.  Each grade level will be provided a one day workshop with Dr. Hopkins at Sherwood.   

Recommendation
Approve the consultant agreement with Dr. Marty Hopkins in the amount of $7,069.36 for seven (7) days of training at Sherwood Elementary School on 2/28/11, 3/7/11, 3/9-11/11, 3/14/11 and 3/18/11.
