7.01 Audit Services Bid (A)
Purpose: The district financial audit was recently sent out for bid. These bids have been opened and the one needs to be accepted.
Supporting Document: Summary of Bids Received
Recommendation: To accept the bid for Audit Services from Varney & Associates for 3yrs at $6,440 per year.
7.02 Summer Food Service Program (A)
Purpose: To determine the length of time that the Summer Food Service Program will be continued.
Background: Due to the closure, we were able to work out details for a program that has been approved to continue past the regular school year. What is unforseen is how the number of meals served will change as we progress into the summer. Currently, we are serving around 975 kids a week. If these numbers hold then we should be able to financially maintain the program and it will greatly benefit numerous families.
Recommendation: To extend the summer food service program to July 1, 2020.
7.03 USD 377 Reopening Plan
Purpose: To determine a plan for starting normal summer activities
Background: As the State and County loosen restrictions, summer activities can begin with some restrictions. Guidelines have been developed for how and when activities can begin. These are dependent upon how both the County and State progress through their reopening plans.
Supporting Document: USD 377 Reopening Plan
Recommendation: To approve the reopening plan as presented.
