Title
Sheriff's Office recommending the Board authorize the Chair to sign the replacement Memorandum of Agreement between the Lake Tahoe Community College District and the El Dorado County Sheriff's South Lake Tahoe Jail to provide education services for Culinary Arts program instruction to Jail inmates for an academic term commencing on September 17, 2013 and ending June 29, 2018.
Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
Teaching and instruction will be provided by Sheriff's South Lake Tahoe Jail staff. The anticipated revenue for the term of this agreement will be $2.50 per hour, per inmate, per fiscal year.  This revenue will be used to offset any costs incurred for supplies used during instruction.  Any expenses incurred not off-set by revenue received from the program will be absorbed by the Sheriff's Office current FY 2013/14 budget, which would result in no additional changes to Net County Cost.
Background
In June 2007, the Sheriff's South Lake Tahoe Jail and the Lake Tahoe Community College District instituted a program through the college where the Sheriff's Office staff would provide Culinary Arts instruction to Jail inmates who register through the college and receive college credit.  In order for this arrangement to continue, revisions needed to be made to address changes in State rules regarding Community Colleges.  Therefore, a new agreement has been drafted to replace the Board approved Agreement # 093-M1310, between the Sheriff's Office and the Lake Tahoe Community College.
 
This program will provide inmates with skills they can utilize when pursuing employment once they are released.  The term of this Agreement is from academic year beginning September 17, 2013 through June 29, 2018. As is required by Board Policy C-17, Section 4.5, "...the Board of Supervisors approval shall be required for any contract term exceeding three (3) years inclusive of all amendments and regardless of dollar amount."
Reason for Recommendation
Approval of this recommendation will replace the existing agreement signed on October 16, 2012, # 093-M1310, with this new agreement between the Sheriff's South Lake Tahoe Jail and the Lake Tahoe Community College District to continue a program providing instruction to County Jail inmates.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
Board of Supervisors to sign two originals of Agreement and return one original to the Sheriff's Office for transmittal to the Lake Tahoe Community College District.
