 1  for school food service and to require district school boards

 2  to establish and maintain an appropriate private school food

 3  service program consistent with the nutritional needs of

 4  students.

 5         (6)(a)  Beginning with the 2004-2005 school year, each

 6  school district shall analyze the operational efficiency of

 7  its school food service program. The analysis shall include a

 8  review of the financial condition of the school food service

 9  program presented in a financial statement format and a review

10  of the program's revenue and expenditures experience for the

11  current and prior 4 fiscal years. The calculation of the

12  profit and loss for the program shall include all revenue and

13  costs, including indirect costs as defined in s. 1010.21(2),

18  strive to operate in an efficient manner and require no

19  supplement of operating funds from the school district, which

20  funds are best used for other education-related activities.

21  Each school district is encouraged to ensure that the

22  authority, accountability and responsibility for all revenues

23  and costs, including, but not limited to pricing, offerings,

24  purchasing, equipment, hiring, pay scales, promotion,

25  retention, discipline and termination of employees, and other

26  costs associated with the profitability of food services

27  programs be vested in the district food service directors, in

28  collaboration  with school administrators.  School districts

29  shall ensure that such authority does not interfere with the

30  ability of school administrators to provide for the safety and

31  welfare of students, as provided by law.
