SUPERINTENDENT REPORT

 

Mr. Green said that he was on vacation last week, but has been working on capital projects. The new High School project is still on schedule, but there are ongoing problems with Rammed Aggregate Pier Equipment.  One of the fuel tanks that needed to be removed up at the Yale project had significant leakage.  Soil cleanup work continues, but demolition of the gym has begun. Little monitoring wells have been discovered on the property and more investigation is needed regarding these.

Federally Mandated Increase to School Lunch Prices

Bill Woodard  yes
Janice Watts  yes

Food Service Contract
The Board discussed the food service contract with Stacy Brown. Jim said there’s no secret that he hasn’t been a fan of food service management companies. He said he knows it isn’t popular with some kitchen staff.  He would like to see the data and think about alternatives after this year. Michael said that everyone’s numbers are down and federal mandates make the program less appealing to kids.  Janice said that some of the mandates are stupid, but we must still meet the guidelines if we had our own program.  Stacy said that having the Sodexo manage the program gives her peace of mind that guidelines are being met. She doesn’t know what other options are available.  Jim said after Stacy gets the final numbers this year, he’d like to talk about this again.

Bill Woodard moved to approve the food service contract with Sodexo.

Jim Bays  yes
