Travis Cummings, Vice President of Benefits, Hannah Carter, Account Executive, and Allison Profitt, Sr. Account Executive of Benefits, The Bailey Group, shared the attached visual presentation to provide an overview of a self-funding program option for employee benefits, for the board's consideration.  Strategies, plan components, financial impact estimates, and funding specifics were highlighted.  Stop Loss Insurance to mitigate and cover catastrophic losses, as well as changes to the Pharmacy Benefit Manager, were also discussed.  The proposed plan would also include wellness support to assist employees with healthy lifestyles and continued resources for employees affected by diabetes.

Board members expressed the desire for any transition of plans to be as seamless as possible and for employees to be timely informed of any changes.  Superintendent Broskie commented on the depth of work involved in this process, expressed appreciation for Sheila Gann, Benefits Coordinator, and indicated there would be an item placed on the discussion agenda for the board to determine if the district should move forward with this process.  He expressed support for the wellness program, anticipates requesting a position to support that in the future, and advised there has been a significant focus on causing minimal disruption to employees.

School Board Comments
4. School Board Member Comments

Bruce Bickner, School Board Attorney, advised the board on three issues -

  • The referendum for the one mill of ad valorem tax previously approved by the board will be put before the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) this afternoon, with Mary Bolla, Board Chair and himself in attendance.  It is expected that the BCC will then place their resolution before the Supervisor of Elections for inclusion on the general election ballot.
  • On May 5, 2022 through June 2, 2022, there will be a ballot under the Public Employee Relations Commission (PERC) order for CCDS police officers to be decided upon as to whether they will be unionized under the Fraternal Order of Police.  The election is being advertised and takes place by mail. 
  • An item will be added to the agenda for a contract to establish and build an academy that will be sponsored by Garber at Middleburg High School, potentially named the Garber Academy for Automotive Services at Middleburg High School.  Board policy requires the board have the final say in the naming of the academy.  At the recommendation of the superintendent, there will be a suggested name that can be replicated each time to indicate the new location as this program expands.  Students in 11th and 12th grades will have the opportunity to be compensated for work while they earn industry certifications in the automotive industry in this proposed afterschool program. 

Board members expressed collective appreciation for the generosity of organizations and the many good things that are happening in Clay County that support the community.  Mrs. Bolla commented on McRae Elementary School's distribution of needed food to families, the upcoming Job Fair, and Career and Technical Education's Senior Career Fair.
