Agenda Item #40


Title
Consultant Agreement between McAuliffe Elementary and Brain Entertainment (Math U Counting Cowboy Show)

Discussion

McAuliffe Elementary is requesting Board approval to enter into a consultant agreement with Brain Entertainment to present the Math U Counting Cowboy Show to students.  The show is scheduled for December 2, 2014, at McAuliffe Elementary.

The presentation is a live show of counting, spinning rope, telling math stories, more counting, singing songs, and audience participation.  The teachers in first grade and VE were looking for a fun and interactive way to reinforce the standards that they are teaching in the classroom.  By having a show come to the school, they are saving on the cost of a bus and transportation to an off-site location.

The cost for the show is $375.  The length of the show is approximately one hour and 15 minutes.  Students are paying for the show at $4 per student.  Approximately 103 students will participate.  There will be no cost to the District.



Recommendation
Approve the consultant agreement between McAuliffe Elementary and Brain Entertainment to present the Math U Counting Cowboy Show to students on December 2, 2014.
