Agenda Item #36


Title
Federal Grant Application: "Project with Industry Program"

Discussion

The Office of ESE Program Support Services will submit a Federal Grant Application entitled "Project with Industry Program".  If awarded this Grant, Brevard Public Schools could receive between $300,000 and $350,000.  These Federal dollars could provide an increase in career opportunities for individuals with disabilities in the competitive labor market by engaging the talent and leadership of private industry as partners in the rehabilitation process.  The project will identify competitive career opportunities, skills needed to perform those jobs, provide training, job placements and career advancement services.

Due to an application deadline of May 27, 2008 and the important impact this grant could afford, we request Consent without Prior Approval.



Recommendation

Approve the Application submitted for a Federal Grant entitled "Project with Industry Program", by the Office of ESE Program Support Services on behalf of Brevard Public Schools.
