For the third time in four years, Pattonville's partnership with Chartwells School Dining Services has been awarded Chartwells' Be-A-Star Regional Account of the Year recognition for the South Central region. Chartwells at Pattonville will now compete for the National Account of the Year award.

In summer 2014, Pattonville began contracting with Chartwells to manage the district’s food services program while retaining its own local food service employees. Kim Maas, a Chartwells employee, manages the day-to-day operations of Pattonville’s program, including food purchasing, menu development, staff training, meeting state and federal requirements and other services. All other food service employees, including school cafeteria managers and cooks, are Pattonville employees.

Chartwells' Be-A-Star awards recognize associates and teams that deliver business excellence as a result of accomplishing the objectives established for a fiscal year. Chartwells recognizes one account from each of its seven regions. Pattonville was chosen as the top account for the year from among 65 school districts in the South Central region. To be considered for the regional award, the Pattonville-Chartwells team had to reach the Platinum Account status, which signified they met both Pattonville and Chartwells objectives for financial accountability and operational excellence.
