The term of agreement is from October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012.  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 Assignment's 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 Assignment's salary, supplement, benefits and indirect costs of not less than 4.0% of the total salary, (to include workman's compensation, Medicare, social security, and retirement).
