BACKGROUND: On May 5, 2009 the Board approved receipt of funds from Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in a one-time Quality Improvement grant.  This board order supports the establishment of a purchase order to obtain equipment described in the grant - Children Safety System.  The Bureau director requested this system as an effort to increase children visibility at selected centers. The Community Services Bureau proposes implementation of a Child Safety and Attendance Tracking system which will provide motion-sensory and real time tracking and monitoring of children.  The system will be piloted at selected sites in Richmond - Balboa, George Miller III and Brookside.  Real time locater technology can be used to collect each child's regular activity pattern throughout the classroom which can help determine program planning.  The system also provides automated attendance verification, which will increase the efficiency of the Bureau's current attendance tracking system. In accordance with Administrative Bulletin No. 611.0, County Departments are required to obtain Board of Supervisors approval for single purchases over $100,000.
