HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairman Jean Monestime
and Members, Board of County CommissionersFrom: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Ratification of Cooperative Agreement with Miami-Dade County Public School System for Project VICTORY

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) ratify the attached Cooperative Agreement with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) for Project VICTORY, a unique business-led transition program designed to provide work skills and employment training to young adults with disabilities.

SCOPE
Miami International Airport (MIA), the host site for Project VICTORY, is located primarily within District 6, which is represented by Commissioner Rebeca Sosa.

DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY
In accordance with Section 2-8.3 of the Code of Miami-Dade County requiring identification of delegated authority, the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee has the authority to exercise the renewal and cancellation provisions and to approve subsequent Project VICTORY agreements, in substantially the form attached hereto, following review by the County Attorney.

FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE
There is no fiscal impact to the County resulting from this agreement. All financial responsibilities pertaining to Project VICTORY will be incurred by M-DCPS. Additionally, M-DCPS will provide supplies and materials for the program, with the exception of computers, telecommunications equipment, internet access, tables, chairs, and desks. The equipment is already maintained by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) staff.

TRACK RECORD/MONITOR
The agreement will be monitored by MDAD’s Special Project Administrator Myles F. Battle.

BACKGROUND
Project VICTORY is an educational program designed to provide work skills to students with disabilities between the ages of 18 and 22. Individualized job development and placement is based on each student’s experience, strengths, and skills. Students are provided support with accommodations, adaptations, and on-the-job coaching. MIA, as the host site for the program, will also be a potential future employment site for Project VICTORY participants. However, there is no promise or guarantee of a job after students complete Project VICTORY.

Through its Special Education and Psychological Services office, M-DCPS will provide a Special Education teacher and a paraprofessional, as well as the names of students who will participate in the
program. MDAD employees will mentor the students through on-the-job training in tasks deemed appropriate for students’ skill levels, while the M-DCPS teacher will complement that training by working with each student on specific job skills identified as “needing improvement.”

The term of this agreement is from July 31, 2015 through July 31, 2018. Upon expiration, the agreement may be extended via extension letter by mutual consent of the parties for two (2) additional one-year periods ending June 30, 2020.
