Schools plan to honor employees

Lebanon Special School District will hold its monthly board meeting Monday at Winfree Bryant Middle School.

First on the agenda will be recognitions, including a long-serving employee’s retirement. Attendance Director Barbara Fisher plans to retire.

“Barbara Fisher is retiring from our district. She has been in education for 41 years,” Director of Schools Scott Benson said. “She has served several years as attendance director and served as a teacher before that.”

The paraprofessionals and teachers of the year will also be recognized. Benson said this is something the board does each May.

There are two requests for proposal up for discussion Monday, as well. Benson said one of these is to take the best bid for protective coverings for Chromebooks that will be issued to middle school students.

“We would like the Chromebooks to have protective devices when they are given to  our middle school students,” said Benson. 

Another will be for the best bid for a low-voltage package for the technology portion of an addition at Winfree Bryant Middle School.

The final item on the agenda will be discussion of entering into contract with GCA Services for custodial services for the district.

“GCA is the leading custodial service provider for [kindergarten through 12th-grade schools] in America,” Benson said.

If the system enters into contract, Benson said his hope is the current custodians would remain with the system.

“It’s our hope that everybody would still be with us…if they have a recommendation from their principal and pass a background check, they would be hired on by GCA and be on the same pay grade.”
