Bellefontaine BOE gets update on revised Business Advisory Council (Audio included)

Bellefontaine school board members met for their only meeting in November Monday night. They heard a report about the revised Business Advisory Council.

State regulations now require the council to meet four times a year and report their efforts to the school board. The council is made up of teachers and area business leaders. The goal is to provide students with information that will help increase their employability. Plus, the high school courses will be examined to make sure that students are prepared to deal with the issues of the personal financial world.

High school DECA teacher and council member Katie Rychener was present and explained the goals of the council to the board. She is working with teachers Tara Wilkinson and Vicci Elder to formulate a list of business contacts that could serve as speakers and possible employers.

Rychener discusses the business advisory council.

The board approved the district wellness assessment. The self-assessment focused on the Food Service Department. The seven criteria could be evaluated as either “strong” or “weak”. Under head Winnie Jacks, the department was strong in six of the seven categories. Following federal nutrition guidelines, offering healthy choices and limiting unhealthy choices are areas that the department successfully accomplishes. In addition, Superintendent Brad Hall praised Jacks for the department consistently earning a profit without raising lunch prices in six years.
