Approve the Interlocal Agreement with Hillsborough County, Florida, Tampa Bay WorkForce Alliance, Inc. d/b/a CareerSource of Tampa Bay for the Hillsborough County Fire Rescue Partnership Academy for the 2017/2018 Fiscal Year (Workforce Connections Division)
We request approval of the Interlocal Agreement, through Aparicio-Levy Technical College, for the Hillsborough County Fire Rescue Partnership Academy. The purpose of this partnership is to provide an applicant pool of newly trained firefighters to the local workforce.

The targeted student population for this special program is economically-disadvantaged, minorities, and women. Through this partnership, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue will provide the training facility, equipment, and site consumables.  CareerSource of Tampa Bay will provide tuition, fees, textbooks, tools, uniforms, and supplies for the students, as well as assistance with child care and transportation.  Aparicio-Levy Technical College will provide the instructors and coordination of the partnership.
• Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child
Funds in the amount of approximately $23,300 will be generated into the divisional Workforce Education budget.  Funds received in excess of actual costs for this program will be remitted to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue to offset costs associated with the operation and maintenance of the facility and equipment.
The evaluation of the Academy program is based on enrollment, completion, and placement of students from this program into the local workforce. A cost and revenue report is calculated for each Academy class.
