BACKGROUND:

Since 2016, the San Mateo County Libraries (SMCL) has operated The Big Lift Inspiring Summers (BLIS) program across seven school districts in collaboration with school staff and community partners to curb learning loss in the summers between kindergarten and third grade.

 

In FY 2020-21 SMCL acquired the responsibility for the Family Engagement portion of The Big Lift, including the Raising-A-Reader program.

 

DISCUSSION:

SMCL will continue to provide the BLIS and Raising-A-Reader programs in FY 2021-22 and FY 2022-23. 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

The total amount of the MOU with SMCL is $1,188,012 each fiscal year for the term July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2023.  $1,188,012 is included in the FY 2021-22 Adopted Budget and the FY 2022-23 Preliminary Adopted Budget that was approved by this Board on June 23, 2021.  The MOU is fully funded by Measure K funding.  There is no Net County Cost associated with the approval of this MOU.
