The Boards reaction to this incident should be totally unacceptable to citizens in the District. Months after the incident and the Board still does not know exactly who ordered the confiscation of lunches? The Board is either not trying very hard to get the answer or someone is lying. $49,999 for a PR campaign? If the Board wants to improve the image of the district then the Board could simply doe its job. That much money could buy a lot of school lunches.

Where are the parents in this? The school lunch program needs payment to provide the lunch service. If parents cannot afford the lunch charges they can apply for assisted lunch program. According to the story the children were in arrears, so it sounds like they had been receiving lunch without payment already. It is the parents responsibility to make sure the proper fees are paid. The schools may need to do a better job notifying parents. But this issue has the emphisis on the wrong party and has been blown way out of proportion

Whichever district employee that made the decision to toss the lunches probably has already come forward to the board, the superintendent and/or the director of the food service program. And if they want to protect the employee, fine, just take the appropriate action to discipline this individual, let the public know that action has taken place and be done with it. We realize they don't have to tell people what action just let your district residents know you are not so incompetent that after all this time you still know who or why.
And don't spend $50,000 to fix your image, do that yourselves.

Undoubtedly, the employees were merely carrying out district policy. The policy, undoubtedly, was an effort to deal with the financial strains common to all school districts. The real problem is that there is not an effort to get more people - concerned and reasonable people - into the policy-making process.

Much ado about nothing...let's move on.
