Discussion Items

Agenda Item 6.0

Discussion of Routers and Battery Pack Replacement Proposal – 6.01
Strategic Direction (SD)4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity
As part of the 2020 E-Rate efforts, the district issued requests for quotes for network switches, routers, and backup batteries. 

After fully evaluating quotes, the recommended provider is Mindsight in Downers Grove for $137,871.71. All costs are subject to the E-Rate discount, which is currently 80% but is revised annually. Therefore, the overall net cost to the district is estimated to be $27,574.34.

SD 4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity
The board discussed the 2020-21 tentative budget. Some of the highlights from the presentation include:

  • The presented FY21 tentative budget has a near $1.7 million surplus for the operating funds, where the budgeted revenues exceed the budgeted expenses within a given time period.
  • Per the Board of Education Fund Balance Policy 4.25, the estimated fund balance to expenditure percentage for the FY21 tentative budget is 89%. This is 6% higher than the estimated fund balance to expenditure percentage for last fiscal year, 2020.
  • The presented FY21 tentative budget will maintain financial stability while continuing to support the district’s mission.

The tentative budget will be placed on display in July. Any suggestions or changes to the tentative budget will be reflected in the final 2020-21 budget to be presented for approval at the August 10, 2020, board meeting.


Action Items

Agenda Item 8.0

Approval of Taxi Cab Services – 8.01
SD 4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity
CCSD59 issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to nine taxicab service companies for the purposes of establishing their contracted rates for the 2020-21 school year. Taxi services are used in cases where the district is mandated to provide transportation for a homeless or special education student, and the student’s location cannot be routed in conjunction with other standard school bus services. During the 2019-20 school year, the district transported approximately 20 students by taxi on a regular basis to outplacement programs or because they were homeless.

The term of the contract will be for one year beginning August 12, 2020, through August 12, 2021. 

The board approved the rates as quoted by the taxicab companies outlined here.

Determination of Serious Safety Hazards Related to Student Transportation Services – 8.02
SD 4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity
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 2020-21 student transportation services, the administration has reviewed the conditions and certifies to the State Board of Education that the hazardous conditions remain unchanged.

The board approved transportation for students in these areas.
