Discussion Items:


  1. Food Service Discussion and review of financials-Toni Reed & Charles Butler





















  1. Discussion of the 10-11 budget approval process








1.     Review of food service financials for FY10.  As of November 2009 food service is     ($23,486.96).  This includes the $80,000 district transfer and any accounts receivables. Healthier foods, fresh fruits & veggies and decrease in a la carte revenues due to change in menu contributed to this balance.  A redesign in the menu to utilize $20,000 in commodities is going to be Charles Butler’s focus to help offset this negative balance.  Reviewing production and other ways to increase participation without increasing cost.  Participation numbers would have been helpful when reviewing the financials and will be provided at a later date.  Some meals have been made by the Tech center though the district still provided the ingredients.  Senior privileges at the high school level can effect participation in the kitchen, though the capability of handling the increase bodies in cafeteria is unlikely with current schedule and space available.

2.     Superintendent went through proposed budget development process. Finance committee approval item list, administration preparation lists, and proposed budget timeline for FY 10-11. Suggestion from the committee to review RIF action on March meeting instead of April.
