Waynesville Board Approves $82 Million Budget
On Monday, June 20th, the Waynesville R-VI Board of Education approved
the 2016-17 budget, which shows the district will dip into its reserves
to make capital improvements this year.
"Our reserve capital funds come directly from B2 Heavily Impacted
Aid funds and I cannot stress how important these funds are to us,"
said Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent. "We would not be able
to make the necessary upgrades to the middle school and bus barn
without these federal funds."
The district's $82 million budget includes $16 million in capital
expenditures, including the early stages of Phase 1 of the Waynesville
Middle School project and all of the Phase 1 remodel of the district's
transportation facility, also known as the bus barn.
During their study session, board members reviewed the scope and
cost of the bus barn plans with Don Hussman from Dickinson Hussman
"Our bus barn and surrounding area need to be upgraded to accommodate
our buses and allow for proper drainage around East Elementary,"
said Dr. Chris Berger, assistant superintendent of operational services.
If all goes as planned, construction will begin on Phase 1 of the
Waynesville Middle School in October.
"It is critical that we begin work on the middle school before
the next round of BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure Commission)
because education has become a key factor in the Army's decision-making
process," Henry said. "Just last year, then acting Army
Chief of Staff General Odierno was quite direct with his comments
indicating that if states want the Army to continue doing business
in their area, they need to focus on the education they are providing
to Army children. This was supported through the West-ED Study of
schools enrolling children of soldiers and a follow-up report entitled
'The Army Goes to School.'"
"The Army pays very close attention to the quality of school
facilities and the offerings provided to students," Henry said.
"A remodel of the middle school is long overdue."
In other building news, facilities at Pick will be ready for the
start of the school year and Todd Whalen, the current assistant
principal at Waynesville Middle School, will be the Pick Facility's
principal. He will also head the district's Community Resources
While the increased spending on facilities is significant, the single
greatest expense for the district is personnel. Salaries and benefits
account for about three-fourths of the district's budget. Waynesville
R-VI School District is Pulaski County's second largest employer.
Savre shares Leadership Expertise with Waynesville Schools
Whether you are in the military or in public education, you have
to believe in service, said Maj. Gen. Kent Savre to Waynesville
R-VI School District leaders during their June meeting.
"I am working for the American people," Savre said. "You
can't serve in the United States Army and not believe in service.
Public education is exactly the same. Educators don't make enough
money; you're not going to become rich teaching. That's not why
you work. You have to believe in service, believe that everyone
can learn and believe in your mission - that you are doing the most
Savre, who is the Commanding General of the Maneuver Support Center
of Excellence and Fort Leonard Wood, shared his leadership philosophy
of mission first, people always, team of teams.
"Treating people with dignity and respect and being transparent
will enable you to get the most out of team members," Savre
said. "Your people have to know what's important to you and
trust you. Teachers are leaders of our students and they have to
walk the talk and others have to see it in you."
Savre also encouraged leaders to be honest in their counseling of
"People have to understand what you expect of them," Savre
said. "You also have to understand where your staff and students
are coming from; there is no cookie cutter solution when you are
working with individuals."
When an employee is doing the right thing, Savre recommends giving
them positive feedback. "Tell them, 'I am really proud of you
and I need you to keep doing what you are doing,'" Savre said.
"That way you can spend more time on developing those who need
your time and attention. If you want to increase capacity, you have
to work in the right places."
The "superstars" in the workforce should serve as role
models for others.
"If you have four or five teachers who are the best, why not
learn from them?" Savre said.
Savre was one of several Fort Leonard Wood leaders who facilitated
leadership development seminars for Waynesville school leaders during
the spring semester. The others included Brig. Gen. Maria Gervais,
Commandant of the CBRN School; Col. Jesse Galvan, the Assistant
Commandant of the Military Police School; and Dr. Rebecca Johnson,
the Deputy to the Commanding General.
The idea for the seminars started with leadership development being
on the agenda for Dr. Brian Henry's quarterly meeting with his governance
advisory team, which includes leaders in the local business community
and key individuals from Fort Leonard Wood. Through discussion among
the advisory team members, Fort Leonard Wood leaders extended an
invitation to facilitate leadership development seminars to members
of the school district's leadership team.
"This is such a unique opportunity and effective partnership
with Fort Leonard Wood," said Henry, "not only do we benefit
from the extensive experience of our Army Leaders, they are exposed
to similarities and challenges that educational leaders face in
The seminars focused on effective leadership skills tied to key
topics such as developing resilience, communicating with your team
and providing effective feedback.
"The seminars have proven to be not only an effective professional
development tool for school administrators, but also one that has
connected us more closely with Fort Leonard Wood leaders,"
Due to the popularity of this professional development activity,
the district plans to pursue additional opportunities in the coming
"This is an outstanding example of how teamwork between our
school district and Fort Leonard Wood can benefit the educational
process for adults and children in the school system," Henry
said. "While the district does not have the resources to continually
send leaders out for leadership growth opportunities, partnering
with the Army on Fort Leonard Wood provides an opportunity for school
leaders to receive frequent, high quality training without leaving
the school district. This is a win-win for students, administrators
Board Approves Opaa, to Offer Food Services
The Board of Education for the Waynesville R-VI School District
entered in a contract on Monday, June 20, to partner with Opaa!
Food Management to provide meals for Waynesville students.
Current cooks and kitchen managers will remain Waynesville R-VI
School District employees. New food service employees will be Opaa!
employees; however, the school district will have the final say
on whether an individual is hired.
"We will still have our hand in the pot of food service,"
said Dr. LeRoy Fulmer, president of the Board of Education.
School breakfast and lunch prices will remain the same for the 2016-17
Waynesville High School Breakfast: $1.30 and Lunch $2.15
Waynesville Middle School Breakfast: $1.30 and Lunch $1.95
Elementary Schools Breakfast: $1.30 and Lunch $1.95
Reduced breakfast: 30 cents
Reduced lunch: 40 cents
Adult meals at all sites Breakfast: $2.10 and Lunch $2.65
The partnership will save the district at least $300,000 over the
next three years by taking advantage of Oppa!'s ability to purchase
food in large quantities. Opaa! serves 33 million meals annually
in Missouri and surrounding states and has a 98.5 percent retention
rate among the districts it serves.
Waynesville serves about 1 million meals annually and spends about
$1 million more than it receives in income from students and commodities.
"Our goal is not to turn food services into a moneymaker, but
to reduce the amount we spend each year beyond the revenues we receive,"
said Dr. Chris Berger, assistant superintendent of operational services.
One way Opaa! plans to do that is to increase the number of students
eating lunch by offering more menu options. Opaa! executives say
that it's the "cooking from scratch" recipes and variety
that keep students coming back. In addition to having nutritional
experts who will help the district meet the Healthy Hunger-Free
Act requirements, Opaa! will periodically introduce new menu options
on a set schedule throughout the school year. Website links will
include links to ingredient lists, which is especially important
for students with allergies.
The contract includes an annual renewal option.
"We are eager to partner with OPAA and monitor the results,"
said Dr. Chris Berger, assistant superintendent of operational services.
"If students, staff and board members are happy, then we will
continue with the program for up to four more years. If not, we
will discontinue it."
Todd Whalen named Community Resource Coordinator
Todd Whalen, the assistant principal at Waynesville Middle School,
has been named the principal of the Alternative School and the community
resource coordinator for the Waynesville R-VI School District.
"While I will miss the students and staff at Waynesville Middle
School greatly, I am excited about the positive opportunities that
accompany this position," Whalen said. "I have been impressed
with the daily contributions made by the district's Community Resource
Office, as well as our AmeriCorps and VISTA members, and look forward
to working with each of these groups in a larger capacity. I am
also optimistic about the benefits of an alternative education program,
and am anxious to begin working with students and staff."
Whalen will replace Dr. Kim Hawk, who is leaving the district after
serving the Waynesville School District for 13 years, to become
the superintendent of Plato Schools.
Whalen began his education career as a social studies teacher in
2006 at Hopewell High School in North Carolina, becoming the dean
of students there in 2010. Whalen assumed the role of assistant
principal at East Rowan High School in Salisbury, N.C., in 2012.
In 2014, Whalen was hired as the assistant principal at Waynesville
Middle School, where he currently serves.
Whalen holds a bachelor's in education and health sciences from
the University of Dayton. He also holds a master's in school administration
from Gardner-Webb University.
