(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

Board president D.J. Hines said while hiring a company to handle custodial operations may not be popular, he thinks it’s the right move for the district.

“I don’t have a problem with outsourcing,” Hines said. “I think it’s a way to gain efficiencies and a way to maintain the focus of the organization.”

The district will begin its transition from Sodexo to FMS on Tuesday. Sodexo’s contract ends May 31 with FMS’s contract beginning the following day.

 

IN OTHER BUSINESS

• The board unanimously approved the purchase of 1813 Shelby Street. The board has purchased homes along that block of the street to expand parking and ease traffic for New Albany High School.

• Students who live outside of Floyd County will no longer have to pay cash tuition to attend New Albany-Floyd County Schools. A new policy unanimously approved by the board will allow students across county borders to attend the district’s schools without extra charges.
