Title
School Board of Brevard County and National Deaf Academy

Discussion
This is a renewal of a previous annual agreement with the National Deaf Academy to provide residential placement for one student who is classified as Severely Emotionally Disturbed and Deaf.  The School Board will pay the residential cost of $460.20 per pay for 333 days.  The National Deaf Academy will provide specialized education through their Lake County charter school.  The charter school will report and earn the FTE for this student.  Exceptional Student Education staff is meeting with appropriate community/state agencies to return this student to Brevard County.  In the even placement in Brevard can be secured, the contract allows for a 10-day termination notice.

Approve the Agreement between the School Board of Brevard County and the National Deaf Academy in the amount of $153,246.60 for residential placement of one Brevard County student.
