SUPPORT SERVICES GOALS                       3000.1
Support services are essential to the successful function of a school system. Management of auxiliary operations is, therefore, an important responsibility of the school administration.

In order to provide services that are supportive of the educational program, the Board establishes these broad goals:
to provide a physical environment for teaching and learning that is safe and pleasant for students, staff and the public;
to provide for students' safe transportation to and from school;
to provide students with nutritious meals in the school lunch program; and
to provide resources and assistance when appropriate to meet the needs of the educational program.

BOARD BUDGET PROCEDURES AND LINE ITEM TRANSFERS                          3100

 

    In accordance with Conn. Gen. Stat. § 10-222, the Board of Education shall prepare an itemized estimate of its budget each year for submission to the fiscal authority for review and appropriation.  For purposes of this policy, an itemized estimate means an estimate in which the following broad budgetary categories are divided into one or more line items.  

 

Salaries

Employee Benefits

Purchased Services

Tuition, Public In-State

Tuition, All Other

Supplies

Property

Utilities

Grounds Maintenance

Other

 

    The Board of Education shall review the recommendations and suggestions made by the fiscal authority (i.e. Board of Finance, Board of Selectmen, Town Council, or other appropriating municipal authority) as to how it may consolidate noneducational services and realize financial efficiencies.  If the Board rejects such suggestions and recommendations it shall provide the fiscal authority a written explanation of the reason for the rejection.

 

    Following the annual appropriation, the Board of Education shall meet and revise such itemized estimate, if necessary, and adopt a final appropriated budget for the year.  Line items in the budget may be allocated more specifically by the Superintendent or his/her designee in the development, administration and monitoring of the budget.  

 

    The Superintendent and/or his/her designee shall be responsible for administering and monitoring the budget through the course of the year.  The Superintendent or his/her designee shall maintain a system of appropriate expenditures and encumbrance accounting that is organized to conform with the requirements for State and Federal Accounting Reports.  A budget report shall be prepared in the same format as the annual budget showing for each line item the appropriated budget amount, expenditure to date (to include encumbered and expended amounts), projected expenditures, difference between the projected expenditures and the appropriation, and general comments indicating the reasons for the difference.

 

    Such budget report shall be presented to the Board of Education’s Finance Committee Meeting at regularly scheduled meeting.



Based on expenditures and budget projections, with such budget reports, the Superintendent shall recommend to the Board of Education transfers from one line item (as set forth above) to another as needed.  

 

    The Board of Education shall not expend more than the amount of the appropriation and the amount of money received from other sources for school purposes.  If any occasion arises whereby additional funds are needed by Board of Education, the Chairperson of the Board shall notify the fiscal authority (i.e. Board of Finance, Board of Selectmen, Town Council or other appropriating municipal authority) and submit a request for such necessary additional funds.  No additional funds shall be expended until such supplemental appropriation is granted and no supplemental expenditures shall be made in excess of those so authorized.

Contributions of equipment or services, including those by local PTA groups, that may involve major costs for installation or maintenance or initial or continuing financial commitments from school funds or may impinge on land usage, shall be presented to the Superintendent for approval. Items which do not fall under the above categories may be accepted by the principal.

The Board of Education recognizes its responsibility for the health and safety of the students enrolled within the district and for those youngsters receiving services or participating in programs or events on school district property. Therefore, the Board is desirous of taking appropriate precautionary measures in situations where the district has been advised by law enforcement officials that a convicted sex offender resides within the district.

Where school officials are advised by the Meriden Police Department that an individual convicted of a sexual offense resides within the school district, the district shall give notice in accordance herewith in an effort to minimize the possibility that the released and registered sex offender will come into contact with students within the district. In addition, the Board believes that cooperation with local law enforcement officials will best promote and protect the safety and well being of its students.

Whenever information is received from local law enforcement officials pursuant to P.A. 98-111 (CGS 52-102r) that a registered sex offender is residing within the school district, such information will be disseminated to building principals for the purpose of confidentially informing school staff.

The Superintendent may also disseminate such information to such additional individuals or groups of individuals who, in the opinion of the Superintendent, have a legitimate need to be notified of such information in order to protect the health, safety or welfare of school district students.

Any notification made pursuant to this policy listing the name(s) of registered sex offenders residing in the Meriden school district shall be in writing and shall include a statement that the school district does not warrant that the list or any other information contained therein is current or accurate and that the Meriden Police Department should be consulted for the most recent available information regarding registered sex offenders. Any information received from the Meriden Police Department shall be dated and kept on file in the Office of the Superintendent of Schools.

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

3524.1

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT 3524.1

The Meriden Board of Education will maintain an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system to reduce the amounts of pesticides applied in any building, or the grounds of any Meriden Public School. The Board believes that structural and landscape pests can pose significant hazards to people, property and the environment. Pests are living organisms such as plants, animals or microorganisms that interfere with human uses for the school site. Strategies for managing pest populations will be influenced by the pest species and the degree to which that population poses a threat to people, property or the environment. Further, the Board also believes that pesticides can also pose hazards to people, property and the environment. The intent of this policy is to ensure the health and safety of students, teachers, staff and all others using district buildings and grounds. The goal of this pest management program is to manage pests in order to:

Reduce any potential human health hazard and/or to protect against a significant threat to public safety;

Prevent loss or damage to school structures or property;

Prevent pests from spreading in the community or to plant and animal populations beyond the site;

Enhance the quality of life and to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for students, staff and others.

The Meriden Board of Education shall incorporate Integrated Pest Management procedures (IPM) to manage structural and landscape pests and the toxic chemicals for their control in order to alleviate pest problems with the least possible hazard to people, property and the environment. In addition, staff, students and the public shall be educated, at least annually, about potential school pest problems and the IPM policies and procedures to be used to achieve the desired pest management objectives. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the coordinated use of pest and environmental information with available pest control methods to prevent unacceptable levels of pest damage by the most economical means with the least possible hazard.

IPM Procedures will determine when to control pests and whether to use mechanical, physical, chemical, cultural or biological means.

Chemical controls shall be used as a last resort. The Board establishes that the school district shall use pesticides only after consideration of the full range of alternatives, including no action, based upon an analysis of environmental effects, safety, effectiveness and cost. The Superintendent or his/her designee shall be responsible to implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) procedures and to coordinate communications with members of the staff who are responsible for pest control, such as maintenance personnel and custodians, and hired contractors when utilized by the district to control a pest problem. The Manager of Buildings and Grounds shall be designated as the IPM supervisor and shall direct and supervise all IPM procedures to be carried out by assigned maintenance and/or custodial staff.

All Meriden Board of Education employees who use chemicals to control a pest problem must be trained and shall follow all precautions and application regulations. The Meriden Board of Education employs only certified pesticide applicators for any necessary and non-emergency pesticide use in school building or on school grounds. Contractors hired to do this work shall give evidence of appropriate training and certification in the proper use of pesticides. Pest control contractors shall be utilized, when deemed necessary, to inspect for conditions conducive to pest problems and to develop appropriate prevention measures. Pest control contractors will be expected to write recommendations for structural improvements or repairs and housekeeping and sanitation measures required to reduce or prevent recurrence of pest problems.

Whenever it is deemed necessary to use a chemical substance, that school must provide notification to all parents and staff who have registered for advanced notification in conformity with state statutes. Parents/guardians and staff requesting advanced notification must be notified of the date of such use by any method practicable, except in cases of emergency. Notices shall also be posted in designated areas at school at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the application, except in case of emergency.  The Superintendent may direct that an emergency application of a lawn care pesticide be made without prior notice to parents or guardians of children in any school and/or staff members in the event of a threat to human health, subject to applicable Connecticut statutory and regulatory provisions.

At the beginning of each school year and at the time a student is registered, parents/guardians shall be informed of the District's pest management policy. Parents or guardians of children in any school and/or staff members in any school may register for prior notice of pesticide application at their school.  Each school shall maintain a registry of persons requesting such notice, and shall provide notice to registered individuals in accordance with applicable Connecticut statutory and regulatory provisions.  Those parents/guardians and staff who register a request shall be notified prior to every pesticide application.

Treated copy of the record of each pesticide application at a school shall be maintained for a period of five years at the school site and available to the public and staff upon request.  The records shall include information required by Section 22a-66a of the Connecticut General Statutes, as it may be amended from time to time.  The district shall establish and maintain accurate records of all chemical use and their location. In addition, records of all pest control actions including information on indicators of pest activity that can verify the need for action. No application of pesticide shall be made in any building, or the grounds of any Meriden public school during regular school hours or during planned activities at any school except in cases of threat to human health subject to applicable Connecticut statute or regulatory provisions.  In the event of such emergency application, no child may enter the area of such application until it is safe to do so according to the provisions on the pesticide label.  .

3524.2

GREEN CLEANING PROGRAM 3524.2

It is the policy of the Meriden Board of Education to implement a green cleaning program in which the Board procures and properly uses environmentally preferable cleaning products in school buildings and facilities.

The Meriden Board of Education shall provide the staff of each school and, upon request, the parents and guardians of each child enrolled in each school with a written statement of the school district's green cleaning program. Such notice shall include (1) the types and names of environmentally preferable cleaning products being applied in schools, (2) the location of the application of such cleaning products in the school buildings and facilities, (3) the schedule of when such cleaning products are applied in the school buildings and facilities, (4) the statement, "No parent, guardian, teacher or staff member may bring into the school facility any consumer product which is intended to clean, deodorize, sanitize or disinfect.", and (5) the name of the school administrator, or a designee, who may be contacted for further information. Such notice shall be provided to the parents or guardians of any child who transfers to a school during the school year and to staff hired during the school year.

The Meriden Board of Education shall make such notice, as well as the report submitted to the Department of Education pursuant to subsection (a) of section 10-220 of the general statutes (i.e. required report on condition of facilities, action taken to implement the Board’s long-term school building program, indoor air quality and green cleaning program), available on its web site and the web site of each school under such board's jurisdiction. If no such web site exists, the board shall make such notice otherwise publicly available.

3524.2 (R)

GREEN CLEANING PROGRAM IN SCHOOLS      3524.2(R)

 

The State of Connecticut requires that each local and regional board of education implement a green cleaning program for all school buildings and facilities in its district.

 

The Meriden Public Schools is committed to the implementation of this law by providing the staff and, upon request, the parents and guardians of each child enrolled in each school with a written statement of the school district’s green cleaning program as well as making it available on its web site annually. The policy will also be distributed to new staff hired during the school year and to parents or guardians of students transferring in during the school year.

 

  1. Green cleaning program means the procurement and proper use of environmentally preferable cleaning products as defined by the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) for all state owned buildings, schools and facilities. DAS currently requires that environmentally preferable cleaning products be independently certified by one of two third party certified organizations: Green Seal or Eco Logo.
  2. No person shall use a cleaning product in a public school unless it meets the DAS standard.
  3. The types of cleaning products covered in this legislation include: general purpose cleaner, carpet cleaners, bathroom and glass cleaners, floor strippers and finishes, hand cleaners and soaps. The preferred green cleaning products used by this school district are listed on the district website.
  4. Disinfectants, disinfectant cleaners, sanitizers or antimicrobial products regulated by the federal insecticide, fungicide and rodenticide act are not covered by this law.

 

The following statement will be part of the Meriden Public Schools' program as stated in the law:

 

“NO PARENT, GUARDIAN, TEACHER OR STAFF MEMBER MAY BRING INTO THE SCHOOL FACILITY ANY CONSUMER PRODUCT WHICH IS INTENDED TO CLEAN, DEODORIZE, SANITIZE OR DISINFECT”

The implementation of this program requires the support and cooperation of everyone including administrators, faculty, staff, parents, guardians and facilities staff.

 

Any questions concerning the program should be directed to either the Facilities Director or the Assistant Superintendent of Schools for Finance and Administration.

(“IDEA”), and its associated regulations, the Board shall specifically ensure compliance with the fiscal provisions of the IDEA, as they may be amended from time to time.

 

  1. Property, Equipment and Supplies

 

The Board, through the Director of Special Education or designee, shall ensure that any property, equipment or supplies purchased with funds from an IDEA grant shall be purchased, used and maintained in accordance with such grant requirements.  Among any other statutory or regulatory requirement, the Director of Special Education or designee must ensure that:

 

  1. All property, equipment and supplies purchased with IDEA grant funds are labeled as such, including equipment supplied to students with disabilities attending private schools at parental expense;

 

  1. A labeling procedure is in place for all property, equipment and supplies purchased with IDEA grant funds;

 

  1. All property, equipment and supplies purchased with IDEA grant funds are used for assistive technology, instructional or educational purposes;

 

  1. Copies of purchase orders for property, equipment and supplies purchased with IDEA grant funds indicate the source of funding for such purchases;

 

  1. A tracking procedure is in place for all property, equipment and supplies purchased with IDEA grant funding.

 

Any procedures mentioned above shall be developed and maintained by the Director of Special Education or designee.

 

  1. Supplanting

 

Funding provided to the Board through an IDEA grant must be used to supplement state, local and other federal funds, not to supplant those funds.  The Board shall comply with all federal and state laws in this regard.

 

  1. Parentally Placed Private School Special Education Students - Expenditures

 

The Director of Special Education or designee will maintain an ongoing census of all students with disabilities who are eligible for special education and related services and attend school within the geographical bounds of the district.  Eligible students with disabilities who attend private schools within the geographical bounds of the district will receive services equal to a proportional share of the IDEA grant funds received annually by the district.  The proportionate share shall be calculated on an annual basis in accordance with federal law, but no later than October 1st of any given year.  Calculation of the proportionate share shall be the responsibility of the Director of Special Education or designee.

 

The proportional share is determined by dividing the number of eligible students with disabilities that have been placed by their parents in private schools located within the district’s geographical boundaries by the total number of students with disabilities identified on the October 1st census, as provided to the Connecticut State Department of Education, for all students attending the Meriden Public Schools and private schools, including religious schools, that fall within the district’s geographical boundaries.  Thus, the proportional share is determined by the following formula:

 

Total Number of Eligible Students with Disabilities Attending Private Schools

Total Number of All Eligible Students with Disabilities (Public and Private)

 

The percentage, as calculated above, is the percentage of funding for special education services that the district must provide to eligible private school students that have been privately placed by their parents.

 

The Director of Special Education or designee shall meet annually with all private school representatives to consult on matters related to the distribution of funds under the IDEA.  Documentation regarding annual meetings shall be maintained by the Director of Special Education or designee.

 

The Director of Special Education or designee shall annually maintain budgets with regard to the manner in which IDEA grant funds are expended for eligible parentally placed private school students with disabilities.

 

  1. National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard

 

The Board shall ensure compliance with the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (“NIMAS”).  In this regard, the Director of Special Education or designee shall maintain procedures to inform all staff within the district how a blind and/or print disabled student shall be referred in order to receive materials from the National Instructional Materials Access Center (“NIMAC”).  Such procedures shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

 

  1. Initial referral to a planning and placement team (“PPT”), or if such child is already identified as having a disability under the IDEA, direct referral to the child’s PPT;

 

  1. Identification of the name of the district personnel who shall receive, and are responsible for, referrals for the receipt of materials from NIMAC; and

 

  1. The requirement that either (i) publishers prepare and, on or before delivery of the print instructional materials, provide to the NIMAC, electronic files containing the contents of the print instructional materials using the standards of the NIMAS; or (ii) instructional materials are purchased from the publisher that are produced in, or may be rendered in, specialized formats.

 

  1. Coordinated Early Intervening Services

 

Coordinated Early Intervening Services (“CEIS”) may be used to support students in grades K-12 who are not currently identified as needing special education or related services, but who need additional academic or behavioral support to succeed in a general education environment.  Up to 15% of IDEA grant funds may be used for CEIS.  In this regard, the Director of Special Education or designee shall maintain procedures to ensure that:

 

  1. The funds used for CEIS are used only for the K-12 levels;

 

  1. Students receiving CEIS are tracked directly over a three-year period to determine if, at any time during this period, these students should be referred for special education services; and

 

  1. Documentation of funds spent on professional development are maintained, which documentation shall include the teachers who receive professional development for CEIS and the names of the students of those teachers who would have benefited from the teacher receiving the professional development.

 

  1. Charter Schools

 

In compliance with federal law, the Board shall ensure that all eligible students with disabilities who attend charter schools that are part of the district receive special education services in the same manner as eligible students with disabilities who attend other district schools.  Further, the Board shall ensure that IDEA grant funds are provided to charter schools within the district that serve eligible students with disabilities on the same basis as the district provides funds to other public schools within the district.

 

  1. Excess Costs Calculation - Federal Requirement

 

The Board shall comply with federal law with regard to the calculation of excess cost.  The Director of Special Education or designee shall maintain documentation regarding the separate excess cost calculations for elementary and secondary school students, as well as the formulas used for each level of students.
