(remainder of December meeting)
MEALS PLUS—The Meals Plus feature of the new point-of-sale cafeteria system will not be used at this time. The program would allow parents and students to access their cafeteria account at home via the internet.
Griggs told board members in December that the program costs $1,590 to put into operation and each family must pay a one-time $10 access fee.
The school will continue to use a method in which a note is sent home with a child when their cafeteria account gets low.
LEAVE—Maternity leave was granted to Stacy Wyse until approximately April 15.
COMPUTERS—Forty-one computers were purchased for $299 each. Griggs described the move as a good investment that should serve the district for several years.
DAIRY—Two donations were used to aid in the purchase of a machine to disburse dairy products, including yogurt. The Fulton County Dairy Association donated $2,950 and the American Dairy Association donated $1,000.
ZONE—An underground fuel oil tank was removed from the Zone school property. There was no indication of leakage, Griggs said, and no soil testing is required for fuel oil.
AWARD—Fayette High School was among 46 in the state named a Bronze Medal winner in the U.S. New & World Report’s America’s Best High Schools. Eighty-seven Ohio schools were awarded.
An educational data research business analyzed data from the 2006-07 school year to determine how well a school served all students—not just college prep pupils—and how successful it was in educating students across a range of performance indicators.
The analysis included a look at whether economically disadvantaged students performed better than statistical expectations.
College readiness was also examined in regard to Advanced Placement courses.
