Background

This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Building and Zoning Services to extend the contract with Columbus City Schools for the implementation of education and career-based training programs.

Ordinance No. 0578-2018, passed March 5, 2018, authorized the contract with Columbus City Schools for the education and career-based training program. The Construction Trades Education Program will create new career-based training programs that begin earlier so that students are prepared to enter pre-apprentice and apprenticeship programs. This investment will give more young people in Columbus the chance to be trained in the trades.

The initial contract covered a one-year period. It is now necessary to extend the contract to allow for an additional year. No additional funds are necessary.

FISCAL IMPACT: No additional funds are necessary. Ordinance No. 0578-2018 authorized $175,000 for the education and career-based programs.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: This ordinance is being submitted as an emergency to authorize the Director of the Department of Building and Zoning Services to extend the agreement with Columbus City Schools so the program can continue in the current academic year.
