COVID-19 upended most everything about the way we operate and at the same time it brought to light the necessity of a healthy, safe lifestyle. Lincoln Elementary School District alongside Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation set out to reverse county health trends and build palates for healthy foods at the start of the 2019 school year. With greater urgency and new challenges, our partnership set the foundation for navigating the changes upon us. An extensive strategy and evaluation plan ignited the team towards a locally sourced, scratch-cooked cost-neutral school cafeteria program, named Lincoln 27 and Beyond, utilizing the existing team and facilities. In this webinar they will share their experience of outlining a vision, finding kitchen inefficiencies, reallocating resources, measuring waste, and establishing benchmarks. The long-term success of the program was built upon effectively training staff to scratch cook in a team environment as well as honing leadership skills. Attendees will also learn how to identify the available existing resources they have to implement a program based on their own unique community circumstances during an interactive question and answer period.

Developing and sustaining a strong professional network of school business peers and allied professionals serving the education community enabled me to learn about an 11th-hour amendment to Ohio's state budget bill that could have cost the Orange City School District as much as $6 million a year in property tax revenue if enacted into law. My professional network served as an early warning system to this potentially devastating reality. This allowed me to put out a call to action to engage my Board of Education, superintendent, local public officials, and community members. As a result, we had 36 precious hours to secure a veto of this secretive budget bill amendment by the Governor of Ohio.

COVID is forcing school districts to find ways of funding remote learning, expand food service, and fund the cost of reopening schools in a COVID environment. Finding additional funds to cover these costs in a school budget won’t be easy. Health benefits are often a potential target for cost savings, but can savings be gained without cutting benefits? ELAP has been providing 15–30% savings over typical PPO health plans for more than a decade.

Maintaining a full roster of qualified full-time educators has become increasingly difficult for school administrators over the past decade. Teacher attrition remains high, exacerbated by a shrinking pipeline of new teachers and the COVID-19 pandemic. While teachers overwhelmingly report passion for their career choice, they also express a crisis of confidence in their personal financial futures. More than a third of educators are considering leaving the profession for a higher-paying job in the next three years, according to a June 2020 Horace Mann study of 2,490 K-12 educators in the United States. Helping to address the student loan debt issue could have a substantial impact on teacher retention. Eighty-eight percent of educators said they would be more likely to stay in education if they could have their student loans forgiven, and 70% said they would stay in the profession longer if they could obtain a lower monthly payment on their student loans.
