H-7. Approval of Multi-Agency Contracts for Adults with Disabilities Services
The School Board of Brevard County, Office of Exceptional Student Education Program Support, annually contracts with BRIDGES BTC, Inc., Easter Seals Florida, Inc., East Coast Contract Industries, and Behavior Services of Brevard, Inc. (BSBI) for educational services for adults with disabilities.
This appropriation from the state legislature provides the funds that are available to the school systems through a Florida Department of Education grant and will assist us in offering services to our adults with moderate and severe disabilities. The 2008-2009 contract agreements reflect an 8% cut from the legislature in 2007-2008 and a projected cut of 5% for 2008-09
Approve the Agreements between BRIDGES BTC, Inc., Easter Seals Florida, Inc., East Coast Contract Industries (ECCI), Behavior Services of Brevard, Inc. (BSBI) and the School Board of Brevard County for a grand total of $184,366.00.
