Agenda Item #29


Title
School Board of Brevard County and Department of Juvenile Justice

Discussion
This is a renewal of an approved Agreement with the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ).  Florida Statute 1003.52(13) requires each school district to negotiate a cooperative agreement with DJJ regarding the delivery of educational programs to students under the jurisdiction of DJJ.  This agreement specifies roles and responsibilities of both agencies.  There are 6 DJJ education programs in Brevard County:  Rainwater Center for Girls, Brevard Group Treatment Home, Frances Walker Halfway House, Space Coast Marine Institute, Outward Bound, and Brevard Regional Juvenile Detention Center.  The first 5 sites listed are contracted service sites and the Brevard Regional Juvenile Detention Center is operated by Brevard Public School staff.

Recommendation
Approve the Agreement with the School Board of Brevard County and the Department of Juvenile Justice.
