12-08-2009 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #24


Title
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 2009 Budget Amendment

Discussion

As required by the Florida Department of Education, the Office of Exceptional Student Education will be submitting a quarterly report due January 5, 2009 to indicate expenditures of our American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 2009 allocation of funds.  During the time of quarterly reporting, school districts are permitted to amend ARRA budgets that involve changes to labor related items.  We are recommending the following additions:

.25 FTE Accounting Clerk designated to maintain ARRA budget

1 FTE Clerk Typist to support ESE students for whom English is a second language

1 FTE Principal/Director to provide leadership and guidance for both RtI and Differentiated Accountability

The State requires the completion and Board approval of State forms 150 and 151 that address budget amendments to the original grant application.  Once approved by the Board, these forms must be mailed under separate cover to support the budget amendments sent in the district's quarterly report.  The State will then exercise its determination to approve or not approve such amendments requested by a district.



Recommendation

Approve State generated forms 150 and 151 to support Brevard Public Schools' quarterly report with changes requested to the formerly approved American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 2009 allocation.
