Agenda Item #36


Title
AVID Letter Agreement between Brevard Public Schools and the AVID Center

Discussion
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, a program designed to help students in the middle succeed in a rigorous curriculum and increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, is offered at seven Brevard Public Schools.  Since the previous AVID District Director took a leave of absence this year, a contract addendum was necessary as the new AVID District Director is required to attend two four-day trainings for two years. The total cost for Year 1 will be $4800.00 due upon execution of this Letter Agreement and the subsequent invoice issued.  The total cost for Year 2 will be $3600.00 and will be included in the 2009-2010 AVID Implementation Agreement.  This amount represents a 40% discount due to the completion of training by the previous director.

Recommendation
Approve the AVID Letter Agreement addendum between Brevard Public Schools and the AVID Center.
