DISCUSSION ITEMS

 

Yale Valley Library District Request to Lease Land
Michael received a request from the Yale Valley Library District to lease a portion of the property at Yale. He showed the Board pictures of where the piece of the property that is available for this is. He asked the Board if they were interested in him proceeding to look into this request. The Board discussed this and agreed that he should proceed.

Planning for the January Board Retreat
The Board discussed the January Board Retreat.  The decided to have this on the MLK holiday, January 20th.  Michael asked for topics that they wished to discuss, so that he could put together an agenda.  Topics discussed were:  Board Goals, Board Roles and responsibilities, Training on Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and School Safety. They decided to hold the meeting at the clubhouse in the Meriwether Community. Michael has reserved the room.  He and President Watts will refine an agenda.  The Board agreed to meet from 9am-3pm that day. 

Yale Ribbing Cutting
The Board discussed the Yale ribbon cutting ceremony. They had talked about having the ceremony on January 13th, the night of the Board meeting.  But, Yale community members are having a Christmas play that has been rescheduled to  January 10th, and want to have the ribbon cutting ceremony that night.  The consensus of the Board is to do the ceremony on January 10th at 6pm, and to have the Board meeting in the District Meeting Room on January 13th. They will have a Board meeting at Yale in the spring.

Sodexo Update
Jamie Williams presented the Board with a Sodexo food service update.  They have had challenges in this department because of the new federal regulations. They are slowly retraining students to choose more fruits and vegetables, by providing more of a variety.  This causes costs to be higher, and more waste when students throw away the fruits and vegetables.  They can’t give the wasted fruits and vegetables to the Community Center, as it is a liability.  Meals were down last year, but up this year.  The Board discussed her report.
