Agenda Item #44
PR6 Safe Routes to School Joint Participation Agreement Amendment
In 2010, the District applied for a non-infrastructure grant and was successful in receiving $129,200.00 to implement the Safe Routes to School program at 9 elementary and 3 middle schools. (Please see attached map).
On October 13, 2010, the School Board adopted a resolution accepting the grant.
The School District entered into a Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to implement the grant.
The purpose of this amendment is to shift around funds that are still available and from which students could further benefit.
The amendments included will be done without increasing the total amount of the grant. Due to assistance from Palm Beach County Engineering, the District did not need to spend as much on Engineering consultants, therefore this money is being used for other items listed.
The changes include the following:
The grant was due to expire in January 2013, and it was administratively extended by FDOT until May 17, 2013. This amendment further extends the grant until June 6, 2013, the end of the school year.
There is a companion item on this agenda related to the Safety Coordinator funding.
I recommend the School Board approve the State of Florida Department of Transportation and the School Board of Palm Beach County, Florida, Public Transportation Joint Participation Agreement Amendment Number One and authorize the Chair and Superintendent to sign all necessary documents.
This is completely FDOT grant-funded. There is no impact to the School District's budget.
