Acknowledge and Approve Hillsborough County Public Schools' Partnership with the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County and the Investments in Programs and Services for Families (Chief of Schools)
The Children’s Board (CB) invests in programs and services that ensure families are supported, children are healthy and safe, developmentally on track, and ready to learn.  The CB releases funding opportunities annually for family services through a transparent Request for Proposals (RFP) process.  The CB invests in services that demonstrate a measurable impact to create and sustain thoughtful partnerships that make a positive impact in communities throughout the county.  A CB contract manager is assigned to provide oversight, support and accountability of all funded programs.

Attached is a list of organizations that are being recommended for continued funding between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020. 

The organizations of these funded programs are seeking a waiver of the usage of facility fees as a result of the services being provided to students at no cost to the schools or families.  All providers will be required to provide liability insurance, comply with volunteer and Jessica Lunsford Act (JLA) screening procedures, and pay for discounted custodial supplies as determined by school.
• Improve the high school graduation rate • Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child • Engage and communicate with families and stakeholders
The CB's financial impact is approximately $6 million for out-of-school time, in classroom support, family support and case management programming.  In addition, the Administrative Service Organization (ASO) works with school social workers to access and set aside $140,000 in flexible funds to support goals for pre-K to middle school aged children and pregnant teens.  Services are provided to families and our school district at no cost.
Parent consent, data, and support documentation is provided to the CB according to the contracted terms and complies with district policies; each program provider is required to meet the objectives and outcomes that lead to student success.
