Real School Gardens MOU - DRAFT.pdf
 
Summary:
We have an opportunity to accept a grant that was awarded by Real School Gardens to Oakmont Elementary with an estimated value of $188,000 over the next three (3) years.
This grant involves a project of constructing a garden at Oakmont Elementary that can be used for student learning, staff development and to promote community involvement.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is attached for your review which outlines the terms of the agreement we would enter into if we accept the grant.
 
Budgetary Impact:
As part of the MOU, the District is responsible for certain infrastructure in order to begin the project to include some concrete work, water lines and electrical. We estimate the cost for these items to be approximately $30,000 which would be paid using 199 General Fund dollars.
The MOU also requires a $10,000 per year program fee (each year for three years) for the Build and Train Program that is due May 31 of each year (2018-2020).
