04-22-2008 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #47


Title
H-9. Approve Agreement with Brevard Achievement Center (BAC) to Serve Adults with Disabilities

Discussion

The School Board of Brevard County, Office of Exceptional Student Education Program Support, annually contracts with the Brevard Achievement Center (BAC) 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 agreement reflects an 8% cut from the Legislature in 2007-2008 and a projected cut of 5% for 2008-09.



Recommendation

Approve the Agreement between Brevard Achievement Center (BAC) and the School Board of Brevard County to provide services to Adults with Disabilities for the 2008-2009 school year in the amount of $209,095.00.
