TonyTony Diers
Director of Operations

Last month Tony reached his 20 year anniversary at PCS. Starting out as a Jr. Support Technician, Tony took on any project offered to him, including some very large district installations involving 100’s of schools. Known for his rapid wit and infectious sense of humor, he has always been able to find common ground with a wide range of customers and end users.

As Director of Operations, Tony is responsible for overseeing Front Office POS, Free and Reduced, and Accountability systems design and development, coordination with third party solutions providers, state office interfaces, enrollment, SIS, and financial system interfaces, quality assurance, and high level support services, especially with major city districts. Tony keeps his fingers on the pulse of our industry by participating in many of the User Group meetings throughout the US and meets with PCS users at several conferences throughout the year. His years of experience in the K-12 food and nutrition systems, moving from one technology to the next, are invaluable to the entire staff in managing the software life cycle.

Congratulations to Tony now and for many years to come, from all of us at PCS!

At the SNAI Conference on June 23rd & 24th, Denise and Judi attended a wonderful dinner and a dance party on a boat. “Iowa knows how to have fun!” Denise commented. Sharing a beautiful sunset with our friends in Iowa only added to the experience. We missed our pals at Ottumwa Community School District, but it was really great to see our friends from Johnston Community School District. JCSD’s Nutrition Services secretary, Cheryl Spring won the $25 Visa gift card.

Dover-Eyota Public Schools in Minnesota grows some of their own vegetables hydroponically, right next to the serving line in the cafeteria! Carrie Frank, Food and Nutrition Director, has taken the idea of promoting locally grown foods to a new level, quite literally. In May, she purchased a “vertical garden”, a tower type display of greens and plants and placed them close to the students in the cafeteria. This year the vertical garden featured salad greens and strawberries and will expand to herbs and additional assortments of other greens in the coming school year. Carrie’s staff services four of the vertical gardens over a 4-6 week growth cycle, utilizing hydroponics. The students enjoy the opportunity to see the plants growing on the towers.
