Agenda Item #39
C-40 Renew Contractual Agreement between School District of Clay County and Challenge Enterprises of North Florida, Inc. to serve Birth-3 year old PreK students for school year August 20, 2008 to June 30, 2009
This Contractual Agreement will enable the School District of Clay County to serve the low-incidence eligible ESE Birth to 3 preschool population at an existing non-public school site with certified TMH/PMH, OT/PT, S/L personnel. The site, Lighthouse Learning Center, is recognized as in compliance with SBR 6A-6,0361, FAC, and is monitored by the ESE Director and Designee. This Contractual Agreement has continued for several years and has proved very successful for identified TMH/PMH, Autistic and Developmentally Delayed ESE preschoolers and their families.
To serve the low incidence population of Autistic, Trainable, and Profoundly Mentally handicapped eligible preschoolers, the School District of Clay County enters into a Contractual Agreement with Challenge Enterprises of North Florida, Inc., Lighthouse Learning Center, to provide programming for those eligible students on the Lighthouse Learning Center, site. The School District of Clay County will pay Challenge Enterprises of North Florida, Inc. per each child and provide transportation for those educational services. School District of Clay County will also provide funding for supplies and therapy. This agreement allows the School District of Clay County to serve eligible Birth to 3 preschoolers of the low incidence population without the impact of additional building, equipment, and personnel.
The Superintendent recommends approval.
The projected cost of implementing this Contractual Agreement is $45,000.00. This compares to the School District of Clay County providing the classes in a public school for an equal amount. Clay District Schools collect FEFP FTE and IDEA funds on each child. The contract has been modified to differentially fund students by their services need, which are reflected by the Matrix.
