On the Action Agenda the Board approved:

1 -Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Grant
The Victims of Crimes Act (VOCA) Grant provides a multifaceted approach to serving students who have experienced crime based trauma. The supports include a full time behavioral health coach (see job description attached), continued funding for contracted support with an anxiety/depression specialist to implement the COPE (Creating Opportunities for Personal Empowerment) curriculum to assist students in addressing the effects of trauma. In addition, mentoring supports will be contracted with a firm in Winchester. This grant will provide $200,000 of support per year for two years. These supports will serve students at SMS, WCMS and our Non-Traditional Programs. The project is grant funded. An additional appropriation from the County is needed in order to receive and spend the funds.

2-Renewal of Maintenance Service Contracts for 2019-2020 School Year
Warren County Public Schools, Facilities Management Office contracts or outsources various building related services that are necessary for the continuous operation of school facilities.

5-First Reading – May 2019 VSBA School Board Policy Updates
In May 2019, VSBA submitted 59 policies for consideration by the Warren County School Board. A chart showing all the updated policies has been prepared by staff members noting the proposed changes. An additional nine policies are presented for review but have no recommended revisions.

As this is a first reading of the proposed changes, there will be an opportunity to discuss the changes at the June 19, 2019 work session. Final approval of the changes is scheduled for the July 3, 2019 meeting.

E – Policies Reviewed but Not Revised May 2019

6-Approval of Paid School Meal Prices for 2019-2020
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 requires school divisions participating in the National School Lunch Program to ensure sufficient funds are provided to account for meals served to students not eligible for free or reduced price meals. Schools charging less than $3.00 for paid lunches are required to adjust the full meal price to cover the difference.

Warren County Public Schools’ current lunch price for elementary students is $2.00 and $2.10 for middle and high school students. Based on the food services fund balance and the increased cost of food, we recommend increasing lunch prices by ten cents for elementary, middle, and high school students. The recommended new lunch prices for the 2019-2020 school year would be $2.10 for elementary students and $2.20 for middle and high school students. This will be the first time school lunch prices have increased since the 2016-2017 school year. The recommendation is to leave the breakfast price at $1.25. The last time the breakfast price was increased was the 2014-2015 school year.

E. Wilson Morrison Elementary School will continue in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP). There will be no charge for breakfast or lunch at E. Wilson Morrison for he 2019-2020 school year.

7-Approval of Audit Firm
That the firm of Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates be selected as the firm to conduct the FY2017 School Activity Funds audit at a cost of $10,500 and that the Chairman and director of finance be authorized to sign the letter of engagement.

School Board Policy File: DGC requires school activity funds to be audited at least once a year by a duly qualified accountant or accounting firm. The policy also states that the type of engagement (audit, examination, or review) and the accountant, accounting firm, or internal auditor, shall be approved by the School Board. The accounting firm of Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates has conducted the school activity fund audit the past several years and is recommended as the firm to conduct this year’s audit. This is also the same firm that performs the County’s comprehensive audit. The proposed cost for this year’s audit is $10,500.

8-Awarded a contract in the amount of $48,347.83 for support of the finance software system for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
WCPS has used financial accounting software from RDA (currently known as OpenRDA) since the early 1990’s. The software was originally provided at no cost to school systems by the state when a new statewide account coding system was implemented. Since then, support for and training on the use of the program has been paid for by Warren County Public Schools each year. The renewal cost for 2019-2020 is $48,347.83.

While RDA is considered an open source software provider (i.e. they provide the software at no cost), it is necessary for users to contract with them to provide updates, support and training on the system. There is rarely a week when we do not have to contact them and usually it is multiple times.

Because OpenRDA is the only vendor that can support this software, they qualify as a single source supplier.

9- Award Property, Liability, Auto and Workers’ Compensation Insurances for FY2019-2020
Since July 1, 2004, Warren County Public Schools has participated in and been insured by the Virginia Association of Counties Group Self Insurance Risk Pool (VACORP). This is the same insurer that the County of Warren uses. A 19-year history of rates is attached. The renewal rates for 2019-2020 are similar to the current rates.

10-Increase the School Board’s FY 2018-2019 Operating Fund Budget by $43,000
In order to receive and spend $43,000 in unanticipated/unbudgeted revenue, an additional appropriation must be received from the Warren County Board of Supervisors. The unanticipated revenue results from the receipt of various grants and a reimbursement as detailed in the attached worksheet.

12-Approval of Expenditure Over $15,000 for the Purchase of Unified Talent Professional Learning Management System in the Amount of $21,935
Request the purchase of Unified Talent Learning Management System in the amount of $21,935. Unified Talent is affiliated with PowerSchool and links to our current student and staff information system making the manipulation of data less labor intensive than with our current professional learning management system. Unified Talent houses staff professional development offerings, keeps track of professional staff’s license renewal points, and provides a mechanism through which professional development can be approved toward relicensure efforts. $14,050 of the initial cost of this program goes toward the set-up, implementation and training which are one-time costs. Moving to Unified Talent will save the school division approximately $6,000 per year as compared to the current professional learning management system being used.

Unified Talent will be purchased using existing professional development funds.

The following resignations and appointments are to be presented at the Warren County School Board meeting on June 5, 2019.

Gainesville: University Boulevard Lane Closure the Week of August 26th

Published

on

GAINESVILLE – The right lane of southbound University Boulevard is scheduled to be closed between Route 29 and I-66 from 9 a.m. Monday, August 26, to noon on Friday, August 30. The closure is needed so that construction crews can install curbs and gutters and pave the entrance to the new University Boulevard (Gainesville) Park and Ride Lot.

The first portion of the lot will open this October with more than 960 parking spaces available for carpooling, vanpools, and commuter bus service during construction of the Transform 66 Project. When fully completed in late 2022, the facility will provide over 2,000 park and ride spaces with access to and from the I-66 Express Lanes from University Boulevard.

All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.

FRIBA promotes Town with ‘Cardinal’ ornaments, annual Taste of the Town

Published

on

George McIntyre and Arline Link walked us through the process of how the cardinals are made.

There’s a fun new project in town featuring the beautiful Virginia state bird: the cardinal.

The Front Royal Independent Business Alliance (FRIBA) members with the assistance of American Business Alliance are partnering to help stimulate local business growth in town, and they are doing so with cute, kiln fired clay cardinals. The goal of their partnership is to continue to create unity within the community by celebrating the anniversary of the “Virginia is for Lovers” campaign. With the 50th anniversary of the campaign coming up, FRIBA wants to celebrate by creating clay Christmas ornaments in the shape of cardinals and invite the community to paint them for an $8 donation. The cardinals will be used to help fund community love letters to bring the community together and spread the love.

Arline Link with Explore Art and Clay at the Kiln Doctor and George and Karen McIntyre from The Apple House introduced us to the project.

Link also wants to spread the word about the Taste of the Town event. A family focused, non-alcoholic community event hosted on September 27 from 6-9 P.M. on East Main Street, Taste of the Town promises to bring the best culinary aspects of Downtown Front Royal to light. East Main Street will be closed off for the event and the night will promise hours of family friendly fun.

In addition, on August 22 at the Open House Middle of Main there will be another community event showing a series of films featuring the history behind the Save Your Town project.

To learn more about Cookie Cutter Cardinals you can contact Arline Link at the Explore Art and Clay at the Kiln Doctor, (540) 636-6016.

Lucky Star Reunion packs Front Royal Brewing Co. with memories of times past

Published

on

Above, co-owner Trevor Lipton invokes the sense of family The Lucky Star Lounge achieved during its fondly-remembered East Main Street lifetime; below, members of that family record and celebrate the moment. Royal Examiner Photos/Roger Bianchini

As former Lucky Star Lounge co-owner and oft-bartender Trevor Lipton said Saturday evening, August 17 at the Front Royal Brewing Company in introducing the newest incarnation of the first and last band to play at his establishment, this reunion was more than a reuniting of former clientele and staff of a fondly-remembered eating, drinking and entertainment establishment, and more like an extended family reunion.

And to the backdrop of headliner AfterSHOCK, formerly known as The Shockers, formerly known as EyeSoar – happily reunited with guitarist Pat Flowers and often guest singer Renee Flowers – the evening had exactly THAT feel, as old friends and acquaintances embraced and reminisced about good times, lost times, and times to come wherever and whenever they might be encountered.

The Lucky Star spanned a nine-year period between 2005 and 2013, at 205A East Main Street, not far from the site of the Front Royal Brewing Company-hosted reunion event – and a shout out to the staff for its handling of the large, occasionally-demanding and hungry, and thirsty on a steamy night, crowd. The entrees, appetizers and home-brewed craft beers kept the enthusiastic crowd fueled for more.

Faces past and present, above a projected video collage; below Lorena Lipton, left, greets old friends Terry, Alison and Ruth back for a hug down memory lane…

Thank you to Lucky Star founding partners Trevor and Lorena Lipton; absent out west but fondly-remembered co-owners Patrick and Shawn Patterson; Star “spiritual advisor” Roxanne Bauserman, family and friends; past and future Zombie Walkers; and everyone else for the memories and opportunity to reunite and fondly recall the bonding characteristics of a true English and early Americana-style pub and eatery – the kind where revolutions, or at least minor rebellions, are planned.

…As did Ludie and Laura

Above, AfterSHOCK launches the musical memories of The Lucky Star’s tradition of nightly live musical entertainment; below, Reno Vaughan takes the helm in helping Uncle Dewey Vaughan front the band.

We are family – the years haven’t lessened the bond former Lucky Star patrons, owners and employees feel.

Guitarist Pat Flowers, aka ‘Keith’ in the foreground light, launches EyeSoar into a Stones-fueled trip down memory lane.

The band takes a shot at its ‘Rumors’ period with the aid of Renee Flowers

The current duo of Lindsay and Stevie, I mean Pat and Renee, take center stage

Wonder where Reno got those pipes, mom, uncle and dad???
