06-16-2009 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #26


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

Discussion

Six new principals were appointed for the 2008-2009 school year, and we anticipate two new principals will be added for the 2009-2010 school year. The mentoring program has been so successful that Brevard Public Schools should continue this principal professional development program.  New principals benefit immensely from Mr. Donaldson's services as mentor during their first few years in the principalship. 

The Area II Superintendent's position continues to be frozen for the 2009-2010 school year thus creating an especially acute need for his services.



Recommendation

Effective July 1, 2009, engage the services of Robert L. Donaldson, Sr. to mentor approximately two new and six second year principals and assist the area superintendents during the 2009-2010 school year at the rate of $500 per day, plus travel for up to twenty-five days.
