Calhoun County Public Health Department School Nursing Position Request
FROM: Brigette Reichenbaugh, Health Department
Department: Health Department  

Information
RESOLUTION:
Resolved, the Board of Commissioners approves the addition of a .40 FTE Public Health Nurse to the Authorized Staffing Allocation Report, along with the associated budget adjustment.
RECOMMENDATION:
The Calhoun County Public Health Department (CCPHD) respectfully requests that the Board of Commissioners (BOC) approve a .40 FTE Public Health Nurse I/School Nurse increase in the School Wellness Program (SWP).
BACKGROUND:
Lakeview School District (LSD) recently identified a need for an additional part-time (20-hours per week) school nurse at the Lakeview Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year. In order to fulfill this need, a current part-time (.41 FTE) school nurse will be increased to full-time (.81 FTE). It should be noted that school nurses work 42 weeks per year, hence the full-time FTE at .81. Through conversations with the LSD and review of the upcoming SWP evaluation report, we anticipate this full-time school nurse need within the LSD will continue into future school years.
ALTERNATIVES:
The Board of Commissioners can either approve or deny this request.
SUMMARY:
The Calhoun County Public Health Department requests that the Board of Commissioners approve the staffing changes as noted.

Fiscal Impact
BUDGETARY IMPACT:
The requested position results in a SWP salary and fringe increase of $21,928.19 for the remaining 21 weeks of the 2019-2020 school year. Of this increase, Lakeview Public Schools agreed to pay $14,722.42. The absence of a budgeted Community Health Supervisor and Community Public Health Director for the first quarter of FY20 results in an approximate savings of $16,000, therefore, fully covering the remaining $7,205.77.
