08-12-2008 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #35


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

Discussion
Five new principals were appointed for the 2007-2008 school year, and approximately five new principals will be added for the 2008-2009 school year.  The mentoring program has been so successful that Brevard Public Schools should continue this principal professional development program.  Principals benefit immensely from Mr. Donaldson's services as mentor during their first few years of principalship.

Recommendation
Effective August 26, 2008, engage the services of Robert L. Donaldson, Sr. to mentor approximately ten new and second year principals during the 2008-2009 school year at the rate of $500 per day, plus travel, for up to twenty-five days.
