Deanna Wilson, Secretary
This office, under the direction of the Department of Administrative Services, is responsible for the following:
Responsible for providing meals that are nutritious and appealing to students and staff in a safe, sanitary and welcome environment while containing costs. All meals are designed to meet one-third of a student's caloric needs. The operation is fully self-funded and uses no general fund dollars.
Monitors the availability of Automated External Defibrillators (AED), located in all of our school buildings and administrative buildings, the district-wide CPR in Schools partnership to promote the training of CPR for students, staff and community members, and pandemic flu emergency response, coordinated through the Franklin County Board of Health.
Homeless Children & Youths (McKinney-Vento Act)
Responsible for the enrollment of homeless students as specified in the district's policy, as well as providing services to students made homeless by a variety of situations, including disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, floods, and terrorists attacks.
Works to ensure that those students whose parents truly reside in the Westerville School District receive the benefits of an excellent school district that operates on a fiscally conservative budget. The high caliber academics offered in the Westerville School District attracts those individuals who falsify residency. We discourage this practice through investigations and available legal remedies.
Coordinates the annual review of the District Crisis Manual that contains the board policies and administrative procedures to follow in a school emergency, the implementation of district-wide school safety drills, the up-to-date education in crisis management for school administrators and their staffs, as well as training in threat assessment teaming.
Serves to coordinate the district code of student conduct and the application of those policies that govern student behavior, up to and including school and/or bus suspension appeals and expulsion and/or exclusion hearings.
