Agenda Item #52


Title
Contracted Services Agreement for Students-in Transition (Homeless Students)

Discussion

This is a continuation (2nd year) of case management services and homeless liaison assistance for homeless students and their families.  The District will contract with Children's Home Society for these services, which will be provided by two, part-time case managers throughout the school year.  Specific responsibilities of Children's Home Society are outlined in the attached Contracted Services Agreement.

Funding is from the Title X, Part C, Homeless Children & Youth Grant and an extension of the ARRA Homeless Grant.  These services are at no cost to the District.  The cost of these services is lower for SY 2010-11 ($25 per hour) than for the previous school year ($35 per hour).



Recommendation

Approve the Contracted Services Agreement with Children's Home Society.
