Benicia Unified School District trustees will convene for a special meeting Thursday to consider cutting one district food service position and reducing the hours of another — though no one will actually lose their job, a school official stressed.
Assistant Superintendent Michael Gardner will present for board approval Resolution 11-12-22 to make the reductions for the 2012-13 school year.
The moves are being made “(i)n response to the increased costs of providing food services (and) the resulting economic uncertainties posed in the Benicia Unified School District,” Gardner wrote in a report to the board.
The full-time position slated to be eliminated is Senior Food Service Assistant, and the position slated to see a reduction in hours is Food Service Assistant, a part-time position.
