Approval to Adopt Fiscal Year, Place 2021- 2022 Tentative Budget on Public Display, and Set Date for Public Hearing – 8.01
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
As part of the tentative 2021-22 budget process, the board had previously reviewed the following schedule:

  • Setting the dates for fiscal year 2021-22 as beginning July 1, 2021, and ending June 30, 2022

The board approved the above budget schedule, and any suggestions or changes to the tentative budget will be reflected in the final 2021-22 budget to be presented for approval at the board meeting on August 9, 2021.

Approval of Determination of Serious Safety Hazards Related to Student Transportation – 8.02
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
According to Illinois School Code (105 ILCS 5/29-3), a school board may provide free transportation for any pupil residing within one and one-half miles from school where conditions are such that walking constitutes a serious hazard to students due to vehicular traffic. These areas have been identified as a serious safety hazard in accordance with guidelines promoted by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) in consultation with the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). 

As part of preparations for 2021-22 student transportation services, the administration approved these areas and therefore certifies to the State Board of Education that the hazardous conditions remain unchanged.

Approval of Food Service Contract Renewal for 2021-2022 Lunch and Breakfast Programs – 8.03
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
The 2021-22 school year represents the fifth renewal for Organic Life, the district’s food service management company. While state law allows the district to normally renew a contract four times before a district is required to bid the service, the state allowed a fifth renewal this year due to the pandemic.

The per meal rates for the breakfast program will increase from $1.3039 to $1.3221. The reimbursable lunch and a la carte equivalent rates will increase from $2.9883 to $3.0301 per meal. This increase is based on the allowable CPI of 1.4%. The summary of proposed costs can be viewed here.

The board approved the contract with Organic Life as outlined above.

Approval of School Treasurer Bond – 8.05

In accordance with Section 8-2 of the Illinois School Code, the school treasurer is required to execute a bond that must be approved by at least a majority of the members of the board. The treasurer’s bond from July 1, 2021, to July 1, 2022, in the amount up to $63,319,843 was approved.

Approval to Direct School Treasurer to Transfer Interest Earned in the Debt Service Fund to the Educational Fund for Fiscal Year 2020-21 – 8.06
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
As part of the district’s long-term financial plan, 100% of interest earned in the Debt Service Fund is to be transferred for use in the Educational Fund. The adopted 2020-21 budget includes a transfer of interest allocation of $36,000 from the Debt Service Fund to the Educational Fund, reflecting an estimate of the total interest earnings within the Debt Service Fund accrued during the 2020-21 fiscal year. 

The board approved the resolution and authorized the school treasurer to proceed effective with the 2020-21 year-end closing process.

Approval to Direct School Treasurer to Transfer Interest Earned in the Working Cash Fund to the Operations and Maintenance Fund for Fiscal Year 2020-21 – 8.07

At the end of each fiscal year, the district records interest earnings. 

The board authorized the school treasurer to proceed effective with the 2020-21 year-end closing process.

SG 1: Student Growth and Achievement
The board approved the device refresh for all students in grades K-8 and an additional Chromebook for all certified teachers.

SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the CCSD59 Board of Education and the CCSD59 Custodial and Maintenance Employee Organization (CAMEO) staff was discussed regarding surplus vacation days for CAMEO staff. The surplus resulted from workforce shortages connected to the global pandemic and staff being unable to utilize their full allotment of vacation days as typically planned.

The MOU allows a slight extension of time for CAMEO staff to utilize vacation days past the normal deadline for surplus days after meeting specific criteria.

The board approved the MOU, which became effective upon approval of the board and expires on August 2, 2021.
