Safe & Drug Free School Consultant Agreement with Rain & Brehm Consulting Group, Inc.

Discussion

This is a continuation of the agreement, which was approved by the School Board, as of the SDFS Title IV Grant.  This State funded program of $305,511.00 requires an ongoing evaluation.  This evaluation will be conducted by the independent consulting firm of Rain & Brehm Consulting Group, which designed the evaluation plan for 2009-10.  This agreement is contingent on the grant approval of the State Department of Education, Safe and Drug Free Schools program office.  A copy of the Safe & Drug Free Schools Entitlement Grant is located in the Office of Student Services.

The Safe & Drug Free Schools (SDFS) RFP Grant request, approved by the Brevard School Board for the 2009-10 school year, is budgeted for this service at a cost of $50.00 per hour with an estimated 500 paid hours of evaluation service.  Any hours over and above 500 will be in-kind to the program.
