Superintendent Darren Douthitt said once a contract is approved, the project is expected to take 60 days to complete.
"I'd like to have kids in the newly renovated kitchen by the first of March so they'll have a chance to enjoy part of the new features," Douthitt said.
The renovation will be paid for with a portion of a more than $260,000 state grant for career technology projects that the school system received earlier this year.
The facility housing the culinary arts department hasn't been used as such since the late 1990s, instead being used to teach a family and consumer science course, Douthitt said. The kitchen equipment is old, outdated and has remained unused since that time too, he said.
The renovation plan is to move the metal hood over the ovens that collects the smoke from the center of the kitchen to one side of the room, Douthitt said.
"Moving that hood out of the center of the room allows for more food preparation space," Douthitt said.
Once the renovations are done or at least underway, the board will look at buying new ovens and other cooking equipment for the department, Douthitt said. The Anniston City Council allocated $120,000 to the school system for culinary arts equipment earlier this year.
Douthitt said restarting the culinary arts department is part of his ongoing plan to help students become more career ready.
"They can get their credentials from high school or use this to move on to a two-year degree from a community college," Douthitt said of the culinary arts program. "It's a primary opportunity to step out of that and be gainfully employed."
Douthitt said that with culinary arts skills, students could obtain catering jobs, work in restaurants or receive the basic skills they need to eventually open a restaurant of their own.
"We're just a primary outlet for kids who have that interest," Douthitt said.
Also during the meeting, the board agreed to destroy 65 cubic feet of old financial documents. Douthitt said the financial records will be destroyed according to state law.
"We don't make board policy regarding the destruction of records," Douthitt said.
Douthitt said schools throughout the city are filled with decades-worth of old and unnecessary documents that are taking up space, including student records.
"I've been concerned with the collection of records we have in the system," Douthitt said.

The Anniston Star - Paying for the past: Black leaders differ on whether slave reparations are an answer
www.annistonstar.com, 16 June 2002 [cached]
Darren Douthit, principal of Anniston High School, said he doesn't support reparations of any kind, except to those who may have had property taken away by the state over time.
"I just think, truly, everyone on this Earth right now is not necessarily responsible for a couple of hundred years ago, that's my issue with it," Douthit said."The only reparations that I would be for, is seeing the divide between blacks and whites becoming smaller; that'd be worth money, to see everyone come together to make the United States the best they can."
The Rev. Ben Little, who serves on the Anniston City Council and also leads Gaines Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church, said the black community should be focused on other issues right now.
"I would spend my time dealing with things important right now," Little said."(Reparations) is something that is highly unlikely.

Butler County parents are anxiously awaiting Darren Douthitt's announcement as to whether he will accept a new superintendent position with Anniston City Schools. When the superintendent was asked if he would be accepting a job offer for the superintendent position in Anniston this was his reply, "I can't confirm that right now, but after Tuesday's board meeting I'll be happy to speak further with you on that."
...
Douthitt says no matter what his decision, the foundation for Butler County schools is still in place, "And there will be another leader if I were to leave that would come in and and continue to perpetuate the education as it exists."
