NAMPA — Following a decision to outsource custodial services, the Nampa School District announced Friday afternoon that it will not outsource nutrition services to combat its multimillion projected budget shortfall for the 2013-14 school year. 

“The district administration and the Financial Recommendation Committee reviewed the information and found no direct savings to the district’s general fund,” Superintendent Tom Michaelson said of the decision, “so we will be recommending the board reject the nutrition services proposals.

The Nampa School Board voted 3-2 April 16 to outsource custodial services to GCA Services Group — a national company that contracts custodial services in 180 school districts nationwide and 22 Treasure Valley businesses, including Micron.

All 83 of the district’s classified staff will have the option to apply for employment with similar salaries with GCA. The $304,917 in savings to the district comes from a less-comprehensive health insurance plan.

Not including savings from the recent janitorial decision, the district has projected a $2.9 million shortfall for 2013-14 school year.
