Approve the Agreement for Educational Services with the City of Tampa for Firefighter Training by Learey Technical College for the 2017/2018 Fiscal Year (Workforce Connections Division) Revised Executive Summary
We request approval of the Agreement for Educational Services with the City of Tampa, Fire Rescue Department, to provide training to the City of Tampa firefighters and paramedics.  This agreement is mutually beneficial for the continuation of necessary firefighter sciences training for the City of Tampa.  The Mayor of the City of Tampa requires that The School Board of Hillsborough County, Florida be the first signature on the Agreement for Educational Services.   
• Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child
This item is included in the divisional general operating budget. The Firefighter 1 and 2 training programs generate Workforce Education funds.  The City of Tampa will pay the district for student tuition, instructor salaries, and indirect costs.  The maximum value of this agreement is $121,240. No additional cost will be incurred by the district.
The evaluation will be based on an analysis of the number of instructor hours for firefighter training provided in the 2017/2018 fiscal year.  During the 2016/2017 school year, 1,104 Fire Rescue employees were trained in the areas of firefighting and emergency medical procedures.
