Superintendent to Make Recommendations for Privatizing Services

Superintendent Bill Husfelt plans to recommend to the School Board the privatization of Food Services at an upcoming School Board
meeting to be scheduled later this month.

His recommendation will reflect the recommendation of the RFP Evaluation Committee for Food Service, which is Chartwells School Dining, a food service management company.

A School Board workshop to discuss food service privatization is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19, 2012 beginning at 5 p.m.

Due to time constraints, the Superintendent has decided not to pursue the privatization of Transportation at this time.

    Read the next article after this one and it's real clear. Politicans are suppose to work for the citizens of the community in which they live, but somehow the roles have shifted.

    The custodians are also inline to be axed. Not too much has been said about them! I also heard that Husfelt will offer principals who privatize there custodians more money for there school if they privatize the custodians.

    I am pleased Mr Husfelt has decided not to recommend the privatization of transportation at this time. That being said, what happens to the 45 plus drivers who received letters informing us we were not being recommended for employment during school year 2012 - 2013. This will leave the district short 45 drivers for the start of school year. Additionally, as of COB yesterday the transportation department had only the minimum number of drivers necessary to transport summer school students.
