Agenda Item #29
Florida First Start Amendment
The Florida First Start contract was approved by the Board on June 17, 2008 Item F-23 in the amount of $155,000. This amendment will add $20,000 to the original $155,000 for a total budget of $175,000.
This agreement allows Brevard Public Schools to be the provider of the Florida First Start Program which is a high quality home based instructional program for children, birth through four years of age and their families. The services are offered at targeted Title I schools with a special emphasis on working with families of Limited English Proficiency, and to teenage parents enrolled in the district's Teenage Parent (TAP) Program. The program provides parent education, home visits, guided parent/child interactions, health and developmental screenings and referrals to community services. The Florida First Start budget is used to enhance services for those families who need additional assistance. Funding will be used to provide salaries, fringe benefits, travel, furniture, equipment, materials, AV supplies, technology support and professional development.
The district received notification of the additional funds on April 21, 2009 prompting an amendment to the original contract.
Approve the budget amendment to the School Board of Brevard County's contract with the Early Learning Coalition of Brevard to provide the Florida First Start Program. This budget amendment provides an increase of $20,000.
