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 has reviewed the conditions and certifies to the State Board of Education that the hazardous conditions remain unchanged.

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.

Discussion to Direct School Treasurer to Transfer Interest Earned in the Debt Service Fund to the Educational Fund for Fiscal Year 2020-21 – 7.06
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.

Discussion of Junior High Math Resources – 7.09
SG 1: Student Growth and Achievement
The board received an update on the ongoing process of solidifying a core math resource for junior high students.

The Instruction Department will continue to work through questions provided by staff and intends to share further recommendations with the board in June.


Action Items

Agenda Item 8.0

Approval of Ridge Intersession Fees – 8.01
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
The Ridge Family Center for Learning offers an intersession program to elementary students as a fee-based option, where these fees cover the direct operating costs of the programming. The 2021-22 Ridge balanced calendar provides two intersessions: September 27 – October 8, 2021 (eight days) and March 28 – April 1, 2022 (five days).

The board discussed the following fee arrangements for 2021-22, which would remain unchanged from the most recent intersession:

                                            2021-22 Fee             2019-20 Fee*

Sept./Oct. Intersession    (8 days) $160               (8 days) $160
March/April Intersession  (5 days) $100               (5 days) $100

The board approved the intersession fees as outlined above.

*Please note the proposed fees are comparable to 2019-20 fees because Ridge has followed the traditional district calendar for the 2020-21 school year. Ridge will transition back to the balanced calendar for the 2021-22 school year.

Approval of Contracted Rates for Taxicab Services for Transporting Students – 8.02
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
CCSD59 issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to eight taxicab service companies to establish contracted rates for the 2021-22 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, either to outplacement programs or because they were homeless (data from the 2020-21 school year is not applicable due to the COVID-19 pandemic). 

Five taxicab companies responded to the RFP, and the term of the contract will be for one year beginning August 12, 2021, through August 12, 2022. 

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