Knoxville —

The City and the School District shall each be responsible for one-half of the costs of the SRO placed in the School District.  Such costs shall be calculated based on the amount of the total compensation, consisting of wages and benefits, of the police officer hired pursuant to the COPS Grant, less the amount of such costs covered by the COPS Grant funds.  The City shall be responsible for providing compensation to the SRO for services performed pursuant to this Agreement.  The School District agrees to reimburse the City for the School District’s one-half share of the costs, calculated as set forth herein, on a monthly basis within thirty (30) days after receipt of an invoice from the City documenting such costs.
The City will provide the SRO with a vehicle and all equipment necessary for the SRO in his role as a police officer.
The City shall act as fiscal agent under this Agreement.  The City shall provide for regular audits of the receipt and expenditure of funds under this Agreement.
3.     Duration of Agreement.  The term of this Agreement shall begin on July 1, 2013, and shall continue for a period of four (4) years, until June 30, 2017.
4.     Termination of Agreement.  Either party may terminate this Agreement in the event that the other party fails to perform any term or condition of this Agreement, provided that the non-breaching party first gives the breaching party written notice specifying the breach and a period of at least sixty (60) days in which to cure the breach.  In the event that the breaching party fails to timely cure the breach, then the non-breaching party may terminate this Agreement immediately for cause and may exercise any and all other rights and remedies available to it at law or in equity.
