During Bloomfield’s school board meeting June 18, milk bids were discussed and Shane Alexander stated how students prefer the taste of Dean Foods brand. The bid for Dean Foods is 2 cents higher a carton than Highland brand.
The board recalled Verdigre school being burned by Highland brand recently. Even though the bid is for a lower amount, there is a clause stating that the milk companies can go up whenever they wish. Highland had went up in price by 10 cents a carton in the middle of the school year at Verdigre.
The board agreed with Alexander that kids preference and good experience with Dean Food pricing was worth the extra 2 cents a carton.
Lunch prices were also discussed. Prices for 2018-2019 school year will be breakfast: for K-12 will be $1.65, for adults will be $2.20; lunch: for K-6 will be $2.65, for 7-12 will be $2.80, for adults will be $3.65. As for the daycare breakfast will be $1.10, lunch will be $2.10, and Kindergarten snack $.50. Milk will remain $.40.
Defining the bill (all expenses are shown at the bottom of this article)
All Lines Leasing bill is for the scrubber lease currently in progress by the school. The scrubber will be owned by the school once the lease to own payments are made.
The bill for Rasmussen Mechanical Services, Inc were to replace some electrical lines. Due to their new vegetable based coating, the wildlife have been mistaking the lines for a snack. Vegetable based coatings have been used to be better for the environment. They have installed wire mesh to avoid future snacking.
The elementary lockers are currently being installed. The lockers chosen do not have an extra shelf inside. Staff found it necessary to add the shelves to keep books in better condition and away from wet coats and boots.
The board is debating whether or not to acquire the shelves which will be an additional cost. In the long run, not having to replace damaged books as often will save more money, making the shelves a good investment.
Some electric wiring had to be changed for the locker project and Mrs. Gieselman has painted the elementary hallways.
Summer Program and Title III
Tabitha Gilsdorf noted how well the summer reading program is going well. There are many kids participating, some of which already reached their point goals only one month into the program.
She also stated how they submitted their Title III paperwork. The purpose of Title III is to help ensure that English learners attain English language proficiency and meet state academic standards
Gilsdorf met with Mark Brady from Columbus and he walked through what needs to be done for the English language learners. The Title III paperwork will need to be submitted to earn funds.
