Agenda Item #32


Title
Consultant Agreement - Cocoa High School - Norm Bossio

Discussion
The Cocoa High feeder chain will now be a full Title I feeder system.  With challenges unique to our community due to poverty and social issues it is essential that all educators work together to provide systemic change.  On the first day of pre-planning for teachers and staff, August 3rd, the entire school community will be joined together for a kick-off breakfast and training session.  Four hundred educators from Cocoa High, Clearlake Middle, Cambridge Elementary, Endeavour Elementary, Fairglen Elementary and Saturn Elementary will join together to prepare for the new school year.  Leadership from the district, city and Brevard Community College are also invited to attend.  Norm Bossio -- noted keynote speaker -- has been selected for this important session.  He will be conducting a session entitled "Academic Motivation and Leadership for children, high school and college students." 

Recommendation
Approve the agreement with Norm Bossio Enterprises in the amount of $2000.00 to conduct a training session for 415 participants on August 3, 2009 for the instructional professionals of the schools in the Cocoa High feeder chain.
