Agenda Item #18
Funds Dispersal from Release of Reversionary Interests on Melbourne Property
In regards to funds received from the release of the District's reversionary interests on property in Melbourne owned by BRAG and the City of Melbourne; a committee of elementary music and visual arts teachers, secondary music, theatre, and visual arts teachers, principals and assistant principals, two resource teachers, the chief operating officer, and a community member met on October 13, 2016, to discuss allocation of these funds. The meeting was facilitated by two members from our Department of Professional Learning and Development. Prior to the committee meeting, every BPS school was asked to give, via an online survey, their suggestions for the use of the funds. The survey results were compiled and distributed to the committee prior to the meeting.
Approve the committee's recommendation to divide the sum into two parts: 75% to schools; 25% to the District.
School Funds (75%)
District Funds (25%)
These funds will be awarded via grant applications.
