Agenda Item #23


Title
Renewal of Agreement for Services between the School Board of Brevard County and the School Board of St. Lucie County

Discussion
The School Board of Brevard County desires to renew the contract with the School Board of St. Lucie County for the full-time services of Bennett Buckles, Jr., as a Teacher on Special Assignment, to provide education-related duties and responsibilities relative to the Access to the Common Core for Exceptional Student Success (ACCESS) Project housed at Brevard Public Schools. The term of agreement is from October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013. The School Board of St. Lucie County will retain the Teacher on Special Assignment in its employ. The School Board of St. Lucie County will invoice Brevard Public Schools for the Teacher on Assignments total salary, plus the cost of benefits and any other employment-related expenses paid during the agreement period. Monthly invoices shall not exceed $9,000 to cover the Teacher on Assignments salary, supplement, benefits and indirect costs of not less than 4.0 percent of the total salary (to include workman's compensation, Medicare, social security and retirement). Brevard Public Schools will also cover travel and expenses that are directly related to the position. Costs incurred by this agreement will be funded by the ACCESS project grant, which was awarded to Brevard Public Schools on October 9, 2012 and retroactive to October 1, 2012.

The attached Agreement for Services assigning Bennett Buckles, Jr. to the position of Teacher on Special Assignment to the School Board of Brevard County was approved by the St. Lucie County School Board on August 28, 2012 but was only received in the ACCESS office on October 12, 2012. Therefore, we were unable to submit this item for your approval prior to the September 30, 2012 expiration of Mr. Buckles former contract.

Recommendation
Approve the Agreement for Services between the School Board of Brevard County and the School Board of St. Lucie County.
