2.

That the Board of Education adopt the following resolution: Whereas, on July 22, 2000, Navy Ensign John Elliot was driving home from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis for his mother’s birthday when he was killed in Salem County in a head-on collision with a drunk driver; and Whereas, in memory of their son, the Elliott family launched the HERO Campaign in August of 2000 to promote designated driving, naming the campaign in honor of John’s selection as HERO officer of his Naval Academy class in recognition of his accomplishments as a caring peer counselor and advocate for his fellow classmates; and Whereas, the HERO Campaign’s mission is to end drunk-driving fatalities, injuries and accidents nationwide by promoting the motto “Be a Hero. Be a Designated Driver!”; and Whereas, the Hero Campaign encourages designated driving programs nationally and promotes the enactment of stricter drunk-driving laws, which have led to federal legislation that provides highway safety grant incentives for states to adopt car impoundment for DUI suspects; and Whereas, in cooperation with schools, businesses, law enforcement agencies and other community-based organizations the Township of Woodbridge asks you to help keep drunk drivers off our roadways; and Whereas, blue and gold ribbons and decals, in honor of John and the Naval Academy, are the official symbol of the HERO Campaign; and Whereas, the Elliott family goal has been to allow John’s memory to live on through campaigns and laws that will save lives. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Woodbridge Township Board of Education hereby honors Navy Ensign John Elliot’s memory by designating the Woodbridge Township School District as the first school district in Middlesex County to be a HERO CAMPAIGN SCHOOL DISTRICT and urge all Woodbridge Township students to participate in designated driving programs wherever they travel, whether as a driver or a passenger.

That, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:18A-5(a)22, the Woodbridge Township Board of Education hereby approve the appointment of Chartwells School Dining, 804 Broadway, West Long Branch, NJ 07764, as the Board’s food service management company for the 2010-2011 school year in accordance with Chartwells School Dining’s Proposal, which satisfies the Board’s Specifications and Request for Proposals for Food Service Management Program and includes a guaranteed financial return of $150,000 and $25,000 in annual scholarship funds for the 2010-2011 school year. The Superintendent of Schools, the Business Administrator/Board Secretary and the Board attorney, acting on the Board’s behalf, are hereby authorized and directed to take all necessary steps to implement this action of the Board.

Ms. Acquisto moved for the adoption of the Superintendent’s recommendations, seconded by Mr. Tamburello. During Board discussion Mr. Tamburello stated he is happy to see the Memorandum of


244 May 18, 2010 Understanding on Race to the Top in Item #3. He further stated he appreciates the district leadership following through on this item. Dr. Crowe explained he has concerns regarding unfunded mandates. He stated approving the Memorandum of Understanding gives the district the opportunity to obtain further information from the State as to exactly what is expected on their behalf. Dr. Crowe will be doing another Webinar on Monday with the Commissioner of Education to further discuss Race to the Top. He noted as new details become available, he will present them to the Board. Mr. Tamburello stated this is a great proactive move on the part of the district. Mr. Miloscia asked if all the stake holders are lined up to sign the Memorandum. Dr. Crowe stated he has not spoken with the leadership of the W.T.E.A. Mr. Molnar stated he is happy that the Board and Administration has decided to move forward with Race to the Top, noting there is now time to receive and analyze the information. Ms. Leidner stated she has several concerns regarding Item #11. Ms. Leidner asked if the $150,000 listed as a guaranteed return from Chartwells can only be used for the cafeterias. Mr. DeMarino stated the funds must stay in the cafeteria account but he can charge back utilities to Chartwells to lower the lines in the general fund budget. Mr. DeMarino stated lunch tables can also come from those funds eliminating the schools having to budget for these items. Ms. Leidner stated the RFP states the district is responsible for utilities. Mr. DeMarino stated although the district is responsible to provide electricity, there are other things that, by law, the district can bill them back for. He stated the RFP also states that the district is responsible for repairs. Mr. DeMarino stated prior to signing the agreement, he will sit with the Board Attorney to discuss that issue. Mr. DeMarino stated there are representatives from Chartwells available to answer any questions the Board may have. Ms. Leidner clarified that we can only pass on the charge of utilities for the square footage of the cafeterias in the eight locations. Mr. DeMarino again stated that he will be able to purchase cafeteria tables from the $150,000 funding which are over $1,000 each. Ms. Leidner wanted to make it clear that the money cannot be used for programs. Ms. Leidner stated the RFP refers to an LEA as Woodbridge School District. She stated the RFP states the successful company has to have at least five years in the food service program in a public LEA. Mr. DeMarino stated he wanted a company that had experience in a public school district. Ms. Leidner stated the proposal given to the Cafeteria Committee was originally $499,000, including the retirements. She stated there is concern that if we had continued with our in-staff cafeteria, that those people would rescind their retirement and the Board would accept it. Ms. Leidner stated there is a new proposal by the cafeteria which eliminates those retirements as part of the proposal and there is still a profit. Ms. Leidner stated during Committee, she expressed concern over nothing being included in the cafeteria’s proposal in the event of an emergency at which time the Committee was assured that there are other contingencies that will be put forward should that happen. Ms. Leidner questioned the money realized from the vending machines, noting the law states the money can only be returned to the cafeteria when the money is generated during the lunch periods. She asked if the district differentiates between the money that is spent during the lunch hours and the money spent after school. Mr. DeMarino stated we do not do that, however the private food service company’s proposal does not incorporate any of the $156,000. He stated he will need to contact the vending company to have timers put on the machines. Mr. DeMarino stated a lot of the vending machine use is during after school activities. Ms. Leidner stated several years ago, the cafeterias sacrificed the vending machine funds for a track at Woodbridge High School. Ms. Leidner asked what guarantee the district has that Chartwells will continue to employ our current staff after the first year. Mr. DeMarino stated Chartwells would also profit as retirements come in. He further stated this Board also made it clear to me that they want the employees to benefit as much as possible so the $150,000 return could have been much higher if the district had stated that they wanted the cafeteria workers to make the state average of $8.19. Mr. DeMarino stated the Board members that were in favor of this proposal made it very clear to him that they wanted the salaries to stay as high as possible. Mr. DeMarino stated Chartwells realizes that they will greatly increase participation and that’s how they will create revenue. He explained Chartwells wants to retain as many employees as they can since they live in town and are familiar with the schools. Mr. DeMarino stated this is only a one year


245 May 18, 2010 contract with the option for (4) one year extensions. He stated if Chartwells does not keep the current district employees, their contract will not be renewed for the second year. Ms. Leidner asked what the increase for the Preferred Meals program is for the 2010-2011 school year. Mr. DeMarino stated approximately 5% but following the Board’s action tonight, he will begin negotiations which would take place with Chartwells who he feels has more leverage than the district would. Ms. Leidner stated the RFP lists several items which the district would be responsible for. Mr. DeMarino asked Dean Poling, Vice President of Business Development and Nancy Quinn, Regional Vice President to come forward to address the concerns presented by the Board. Mr. Poling stated as a dining service contractor, they are unable to employ lunch aides that also supervise recess. He stated in their plan, they staff elementary schools with lunch aides that work a full day for Chartwells. Ms. Leidner questioned the printing of the menu and the cleaning of the facilities as well as transportation of meals. Mr. Poling explained printing of the menus is put in the Chartwells budget. Regarding cleaning, he explained typically the Chartwells employees clean up daily. He stated a professional cleaning service is normally brought in for exhaust systems and any other areas which exceed 6 feet in height. Ms. Leidner stated she is concerned about supplying glass wear and paper plates which would be used in the cafeterias. Mr. Poling stated all paper goods are built into their budget. He stated as far as trash, Chartwells respects whatever the custodial agreements are. He further explained in some districts Chartwells takes the trash to the dumpsters; it simply depends on the district. Mr. Poling stated there is a $750,000 investment incorporated in their plan which will not only renovate the schools but will also help furnish the brand new supplies (reusable items). Ms. Leidner verified that the $750,000 investment would not be in the first year of the contract. Mr. Poling explained the capital depends upon the district. He stated Chartwells prefers to do the improvements up front so the facilities present an inviting “food court” appearance. Ms. Leidner asked what would happen if the total investment was put into the district in the first year and the Board did not renew the contract for the next year. Mr. Poling stated Chartwells has a 98% account retention in New Jersey and nationally. He explained that if the Board did not renew the contract, the $750,000 depreciates at a rate of $150,000 per year. He stated by USDA law, the district can bring in another contractor to replace Chartwells who in their RFP would pick up the investment, or if the district desired to bring food back in-house, rather than pay the total amount, they could pay back the investment over a four year period at 0% interest. Mr. Poling stated Chartwells privatized Washington D.C. but passed on Trenton. He stated Dr. Crowe’s first criteria in obtaining a company was treat dining staff as fairly as possible. Ms. Leidner asked the starting salary for someone hired off the street. Mr. Poling stated for part-time, new jobs range from $8.25 to $9.00 per hour, however salaries are increased for more skilled staff. Ms. Quinn stated Chartwells commitment is in the proposal and echoes what Mr. Poling has been explaining. She stated living in Colonia, this is a very important district and she is committed to bringing this program into the district and operating it honestly and with integrity. Mr. Poling stated the only case that a current district employee would not be offered a position is if they did not pass a background check. Mr. Tamburello stated if the revenue generated from Chartwells is used to pay utilities, budget line item numbers will be reduced which will ultimately affect the classroom. Mr. DeMarino stated he spoke with the district’s auditor regarding this issue and was advised that this is totally acceptable. Dr. Crowe stated if it is the Board’s desire, as we replace tables and upgrade the eating areas, the money received back from Chartwells can also be used to reduce the price of lunches. Mr. Poling stated the $750,000 investment usage is planned by a district committee. Mr. Tamburello asked what is proposed as future revenue increases above and beyond the first year. Mr. Poling stated currently participation is average but there is certainly room to improve to where the Edison and South Brunswick districts are. Mr. Tamburello asked what Edison district realizes in profits. Mr. Poling stated Edison has a comparable return to Woodbridge and he anticipates a return between 4 and 9 given the size of the district.


246 May 18, 2010 Mr. Tamburello stated the submitted proposal is a very professional and generous package. Mr. Molnar stated many parents cannot afford to pay upfront for the month. He asked if it is possible to participate on a day to day basis. Mr. Poling stated currently the district does not have a Point of Sale (POS) system and the initial cost of the system is $150,000. Mr. Molnar stated working with the cafeteria over the past few years, the district was always attempting to catch up participation. He stated high school participation is not good. Ms. Quinn responded presentation is extremely important. She stated when visiting Woodbridge High School she saw a very attractive deli bar. Ms. Quinn stated the programs initiated by Chartwells have always moved forward, anywhere from 5% to 105% increase in participation. Mr. Molnar stated every year the district budgets for a food service deficit. Mr. Molnar stated if the district no longer has to budget for a deficit, that money can go back into programs. Mr. DeMarino stated the food service workers have made tremendous sacrifices in the past three years, noting that the proposals that come forward from cafeteria are always on the backs of the employees. Mr. Molnar stated everyone needs to understand where the cafeteria workers are coming from. He stated he understands their fight to eliminate the problem. Dr. Crowe stated he was not receptive to the initial proposal with Chartwells, but if awarded he will continue to assure that our employees are treated fairly and with dignity. Mr. Yuhasz asked what medical benefits are available through Chartwells as compared to what the cafeteria staff is receiving in the district. Mr. DeMarino stated all new hires start at $9.00 an hour without benefits. He stated Chartwells will offer benefits to all employees. Mr. DeMarino explained because of the size of the company, Chartwells offers four different medical plans. Mr. Yuhasz asked if employees with existing conditions will be covered. Mr. Poling stated the transfer of benefits will be made from the day ending in the district to the first day of the contract with Chartwells, noting there will be no lapse in coverage. Mr. Tamburello asked if benefits can be changed within a year. Mr. Poling stated he believes health insurance is in effect for a year period but can be changed on a yearly basis. B. Geoffroy, President, W.T.E.A., asked if there are additional expenses, other than repairs, that would need to come out of the $150,000 guaranteed funds. Mr. DeMarino stated he will need to look into that, but at this point, not that he’s aware of. Mr. Geoffroy verified that the district will be responsible for the free and reduced lunch paperwork. Mr. DeMarino responded, yes. Mr. Geoffroy made additional comments on the free and reduced lunch paperwork. Mr. DeMarino stated Ms. Rotella’s office has offered to take on that task. Mr. Geoffroy verified that the money for district employees handling the applications would need to come from the $150,000. Mr. DeMarino stated he is correct, but would look into negotiating that issue prior to signing the final agreement with Chartwells. Mr. DeMarino stated it would be possible to hire someone as an additional food service person. Dr. Crowe asked if that payment could come from the $156,000 which is received from the vending contract. Mr. DeMarino stated it could. Mr. DeMarino stated the way the RFP is written, it allowed for one secretary, hired by Chartwells, to handle the free and reduced applications. He stated the POS generates a lot of the reports. Mr. Geoffroy questioned the health benefit starting date. Mr. DeMarino stated health benefits would begin July 1, 2010. Mr. Geoffroy stated the cafeteria has made tremendous strides this year and Mr. Marquart gave the Cafeteria Committee a proposal indicating there would be approximately an $80,000 profit by the end of the year. Dr. Crowe stated that figure must include $156,000 from the vending. Mr. Geoffroy stated only approximately $60,000 was included from vending. Dr. Crowe agreed that the cafeteria workers have done an astounding job. He stated he went to the County Superintendent asking for a 3 year window to get them to a 0 deficit. Dr. Crowe stated unfortunately there was no way of imagining the 33% cut from Trenton. Dr. Crowe explained when the district was forced to cut programs to extent they had to, it was necessary to look at other options since we could not possibly have the money to take care of a deficit. He stressed the difficulty in expressing to parents that money was used for a deficit when programs have


247 May 18, 2010 been cut to the extent that they have. Mr. Geoffroy made additional comments regarding unemployment which will have to be budgeted next year. Mr. Geoffroy stated this Board offered them the opportunity to eliminate the deficit over a 3 year period and if given the chance, the cafeteria personnel will accomplish that. Dr. Crowe stressed that from the beginning, he was clear that any proposal he put forth would protect our employees. Mr. DeMarino stated Mr. Geoffroy is using this year’s numbers and attempting to compare them to next year. He stated next year costs will go up and they will be unable to cover that increase unless they are able to raise participation. Mr. DeMarino stated the district has been unable to raise participation in the 7 years that he has been the Business Administrator. He stressed the reason the cafeteria is getting closer to eliminating the deficit is due to layoffs, furloughs, and reducing time. Mr. DeMarino stated the plan is admirable but working the numbers he cannot see how the deficit will be eliminated. Mr. Molnar stated the 3 year plan came about after the new accountability regulations came out that cafeterias had to be self-sufficient. Mr. Molnar stated the Cafeteria Committee met, with some workers, and a plan was put in place which resulted in sacrifices made by each cafeteria worker. Mr. Molnar stated the plan still needed approval by the Executive County Superintendent who looked at it and said if you think it will work in 3 years you can move forward, but he wanted to see progress. Mr. Molnar stated progress was made the first year. This year, however, with the budget crises, Dr. Piegari asked what the situation is with the cafeteria to which Dr. Crowe responded it was out of the budget. Dr. Crowe stated Dr. Piegari suggested we look to a private company for cafeteria services. Mr. Molnar stated ultimately we could present a plan to Dr. Piegari with the new budget and he could reject it since it was not at a 0 deficit. Mr. Geoffroy made additional comments regarding the deficit. Dr. Crowe stated the district must look forward to future years. Mr. Geoffroy asked the Board and Administration to reconsider their decision to privatize cafeteria. A. Donnelly, asked what the Colonia High School math scores are. Ms. Rotella responded 81%. She asked if there are items that would possibly help increase scores. Ms. Rotella stated there is nothing going forward but will make every effort to improve the score. Ms. Donnelly asked if there is a plan for reinstating programs if funding in the district is received. Dr. Crowe stated he is prioritizing programs. He is hopeful to put a committee together in June to immediately look at the long term solvency of the district which will allow us to fund programs that we are either bringing back or going forward with. Mr. Molnar commented on the lengthy discussion regarding cafeteria, noting that the discussion is pertinent at this point in the meeting since the item being discussed appears on the Superintendent’s agenda. Mr. Tamburello stated the Colonia High School scores were discussed during the winter months and further comment can be made during the Curriculum agenda presentation. L. McGeehan, stated as a parent and taxpayer, she feels the primary responsibility of Central Administration and the Board is to assure the children receive the best education that can be provided. She stated with the funding challenges facing the district, the Board and Administration need to steer all monies towards academic programs. She acknowledged the reality of employees losing their jobs during this economic crisis. Ms. McGeehan stated the deficit has been carried on for too many years. Ms. McGeehan stated there are people on this Board that must take responsibility for not addressing this issue earlier. Ms. McGeehan stated, as a parent, the Chartwells proposal looks fabulous. She commended the Board and Administration for negotiating positions for the existing employees at a rate of pay which is comparable to what they are currently making. She stated she feels it would be irresponsible of this Board to not vote to accept this proposal. Mr. Small called for a roll call of the Board. With all Board members voting in favor with the exception of Ms. Leidner, Mr. Miloscia and Mr. Yuhasz who voted no on Item #11, the foregoing was adopted. During roll call Mr. Molnar stated Item #11 presents an issue which has been at the heart of the district for a number of years. He stated if he is responsible he will accept that. Mr. Molnar stated the Board tried to work to keep cafeteria in house, build up participation and chase the deficit. Mr. Molnar stressed that the district would not have received the support of the Executive County Superintendent to try again to eliminate the deficit. Mr. Tamburello quoted a former statement made by former Board President, Brian Molnar, “Woodbridge spelled backwards means typically rumor.” He added, “Woodbridge spelled backwards means wrong rumor.” Mr. Tamburello stated he has analyzed these proposals and not only


248 May 18, 2010 does it make sense for the lunch room to accept the private company, it also makes absolute sense for the classroom. Mr. Yuhasz thanked Dr. Crowe and Mr. DeMarino for all their resources and insights regarding Item #11.

Mr. Triebwasser moved for the adoption of the Curriculum recommendations, seconded by Mr. Yuhasz. During Board discussion Mr. Tamburello asked what the plans are to improve the high school HSPA scores. Ms. Rotella stated Woodbridge High School was the pilot school this year. Ms. Rotella stated she took the Kennedy High School model adapted it to Woodbridge High School, a very large and diverse school, and increased the scores by 7 points. She further stated she feels confident that the model will work at every school and has plans to bring it to Colonia High School next year. Ms. Rotella stated test scores are the direct result of the work of the supervisors involved, Glenn Lottmann for math, who has worked well with the department heads in both Kennedy and Woodbridge High Schools. Ms. Rotella stated she anticipates seeing improved scores at Colonia High School next year. Dr. Crowe stated there is a model that has been successful in larger school districts such as Woodbridge where the Superintendent identifies schools that he feels are in need of improvement or have a specific area that he would like to see improved. He further stated at that point, the Superintendent meets once every month or two with the principal of the school inspecting plans, artifacts and benchmarks of how the plans are being met. Dr. Crowe stated he will be reviewing all test scores with Central Administration and they will begin putting together the list of schools that he will be meeting with on a more frequent basis. Mr. Tamburello commented on the five-year curriculum evaluation listed in Item #3. Ms. Rotella stated unfortunately over the last several years, issues of deficits have drained curriculum. Ms. Rotella stated there are no improvements in the 2010-11 curriculum. She stated the district has a biology curriculum which is 12 years old and the students cannot be expected to pass the mandatory biology test when it is based on newer material. Ms. Rotella commented on the Grade 1 reading program which has been extremely successful. She stated only 15 out of 800 are not reading with the fluency the district is looking for. During public discussion, N. Wilson, Colonia, asked how it is decided where the test programs will be administered. Ms. Rotella stated when the district initiates a pilot program, they attempt to pick a school that will replicate the district. She stated the district often runs pilot programs in all district schools. There was no further discussion from the Board or public. With all Board members voting in favor, the foregoing was adopted. The Finance and Insurance Committee, on recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools and the Business Administrator/Board Secretary, presented the following: 1.

(Transportation Agenda 1/21/10, Item 4.) Mr. Golden moved for the adoption of the Transportation recommendations, seconded by Mr. Yuhasz. There were no comments or questions from the Board or public. With all Board members voting in favor, the foregoing was adopted. Board Attorney, Viola Lordi, had nothing to bring before the Board for open session. Under "Old Business," Ms. Leidner asked if quotes were received for the notification system, currently Honeywell. Mr. DeMarino stated two quotes were received, K-12 Alerts and Global Connect. He explained K-12 Alerts does not have any accounts in New Jersey which was a concern to him. He also advised he received mixed reviews from other Business Administrators on Global Connect. Mr. DeMarino stated he will possibly put the service out to bid. Ms. Leidner questioned the rental charges for organizations using our facilities, referencing in particular, the Chinese community. Mr. DeMarino stated in this budget crisis, the district will be charging everyone who uses the facilities. Ms. Leidner stated there is a similar agreement on Sundays at Iselin Middle School. Mr. DeMarino stated this is revenue coming into the district. Ms. Leidner stated she feels the organizations should be paying to use the facilities as well as paying for any damage that may occur while they are using the buildings. Ms. Leidner asked when the bids will be opened for custodial services. Mr. DeMarino stated originally they were due today, May 18, however, there were several questions put forward by the various vendors who picked up a bid. Mr. DeMarino stated the new bid opening date is June 2nd. Under “New Business," Mr. Tamburello read an article regarding the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Education (MAC-E).


270 May 18, 2010 Mr. Tamburello announced that Presidents’ Council is holding a Round Table on Thursday at the Administration Building where the PTO presidents will brain storm to come up with ideas that would enable the various PTO’s to pick up the cost of some of the programs that are being lost due to budget restraints. Mr. Molnar suggested a student group be formed where the students will mirror the Administration and Board members. Ms. Leidner agreed with Mr. Molnar, stating this is a wonderful idea, suggesting the possibility of students conducting a meeting with a mock agenda. Mr. Molnar stated he got the idea from the Town Council. Ms. Acquisto agreed with Mr. Molnar that involving the students is a good idea. She further stated she feels all committees should be open. The Board President opened the meeting to the public. There were no comments or questions from the public during this portion of the meeting. Ms. Acquisto then presented to the Board for its consideration, a resolution for a Closed Session to discuss subjects exempted from the public portion of the meeting. The discussion to be held in Closed Session will be about personnel matters which include: extensions of sympathy; retirements; leaves of absence; adjustments in salaries; transfers of certified staff; appointments and reappointments of certified staff ; appointments of substitutes, which include substitute principals and teachers; appointments and changes of staff members for committees, after-school and professional development activities, home instructors, and custodians of school monies; Fall and Winter coaching appointments; employee suspension and rescinding of an employee reappointment; and the discussion of a waiver of previously agreed upon salary for the 2010-1011 school year for the Superintendent of Schools upon his request for a salary freeze for the 2010-2011 school year. Any information regarding the Closed Session discussion will be released to the public when the reasons for discussing these matters in Closed Session no longer exist. On motion by Ms. Acquisto, seconded by Ms. Leidner and carried, the Board retired into Closed Session at approximately 8:45 p.m. The Board returned from Closed Session at approximately 9:25 p.m. and a roll call found all members present as were previously recorded.
