Agenda Item #33


Title
Continuation of Project SEARCH Contracted Services Agreement with Health First, Inc.

Discussion

Brevard Public Schools is continuing its agreement to reimburse Health First, Inc. at Holmes Regional Medical Center for students' participation in Project SEARCH.  The funds were projected and budgeted for 14 students in new school number 1073.

In preparation for Project SEARCH expansion of two new sites, the Health First Cape Canaveral Hospital site will also be included in this contractual agreement.  This site was not projected or budgeted.  However, FTE funds earned in October will be used to reimburse Health First at Cape Canaveral for up to seven (7) students.

This agreement will allow for Project SEARCH to be expanded to four sites serving up to 49 students in 2011-12, an increase of 21 students over 2010-11.
