06-15-2010 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #48


Title
Renewal of Consulting Agreement with Robert L. Donaldson, Sr.

Discussion
Three new principals were appointed for the 2009-2010 school year, and we anticipate approximately two new principals will be added for the 2010-2011 school year.  The mentoring program has been so successful that Brevard Public Schools should continue this principal professional development program.  Principals benefit immensely from Mr. Donaldson's services as mentor during their first few years in the principalship.  Mr. Donaldson continues to serve as a valuable resource to principals whom he has mentored in the past several years.

Recommendation
Effective July 1, 2010, engage the services of Robert L. Donaldson, Sr. to mentor approximately two new and three second year principals and assist the area superintendents during the 2010-2011 school year at the rate of $500 per day, plus travel for up to twenty-five days.
