An evaluation of the Killeen Independent School District’s health insurance procurement process recommended the board not survey employees for their input.

Instead, representatives from the Texas Association of School Business Officials, suggested having a committee look into the needs of employees.

The school board was presented with the suggestions today during its workshop.

Terry Delano, board vice president, said last year was the first time since he was appointed to the board in 2006 that the district used an employee survey instead of a committee to get input on health care providers.

“I can’t even tell you why that happened,” Delano said. “They wanted a better feel of what the employees wanted.”

The association also suggested the district hire a consultant to draw up the proposal, give health insurance providers more time to review the proposal and reach out to providers outside the Killeen-area.
