TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to execute an agreement and any subsequent amendments with Long Beach City College to provide instructional services to City employees with funds generated to be directed for Police and Fire Department training budgets. (Citywide)

Through the FTES program, the State of California reimburses LBCC a specific amount per student per instructional hour. Under the new agreement, the Police and Fire Department will again receive fifty percent of the FTES payments net of LBCC administrative costs. The term of this agreement shall be three years, with the option to renew for two additional one-year terms. The agreement may be terminated within thirty (30) days written notice by either party.
