Title
Interagency Agreement with Eckerd Youth Alternatives

Discussion
The goal of the annual collaboration between Eckerd Youth Alternatives and Brevard Public Schools is to enhance school safety through the provision of services designed to promote/increase conflict resolution skills among third, fourth, and fifth grade students and to parents in the form of family workshops and outreach programs.  Services will be provided in accordance with the provisions of  the "Community Juvenile Justice System Act of 1993" as created in Chapter 39.025 and Chapter 860.1545, Florida Statutes.  There is no cost to the district for this program.  

The district has maintained an annual agreement with Eckerd Youth Alternatives since before 2004.


Recommendation
Authorize the Superintendent to renew the district's agreement with Eckerd Youth Alternatives to provide the Hi-Five program at Endeavour and Riverview Elementary Schools.
