Title
Multi-Agency Contract Agreements to Serve Brevard Public School Adult Students with Disabilities

Discussion

The School Board of Brevard County, Office of Exceptional Student Education Program Support, annually contracts with Behavior Services of Brevard, Inc. (BSBI - 1000), The Brevard Achievement Center (BAC - 1103), BRIDGES BTC, Inc. (1104), East Coast Contract Industries (ECCI - 0090), and Easter Seals Florida, Inc. (2013) to provide services to adult students with disabilities.  Services include the employment of an instructor by each agency to provide Adult Basic Education to students with moderate and severe disabilities.

The 2010-11 contract agreements reflect a 5% decrease from 2009-10. This specific appropriation from the state legislature provides the funding to Brevard Public Schools through the Adults with Disabilities grant.



Recommendation

Approve the Agreements between Bridges BTC, Inc., East Coast Contract Industries (ECCI), Behavior Services of Brevard, Inc. (BSBI), Brevard Achievement Center (BAC) and the School Board of Brevard County for $321,198.00 for services to adults with disabilities.
