Lunch prices were approved to increase by 10 cents. The proposal read as follows:
As you may recall, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 contains a provision that , effective July 1, 2011, required School Districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program to ensure that schools are providing the same level of support for lunches served to students who are not eligible for free or reduced price lunches (i.e., paid lunches) as they are for lunches served to students eligible for free lunches.
As a result, School Districts must compare the average price charged for lunches served to students not eligible for free or reduced price lunches to the difference between the higher Federal reimbursement provided for free lunches and the lower Federal reimbursement provided for paid lunches.
After completing this comparison, the increase required in our lunch pricing amounts to $.10 cents.
The lunch prices for the 2014-2015 school year will be as follows:
Elementary = $2.30
Middle School = $2.75
High School = $3.00
Premium meal (grades 6-12) = additional 50 cents
Breakfast = $1.80
Adult meal = $3.85
Reduced price lunch = $.40
Milk = $.50
The creation of a revolving fund to manage the money and expenses for the repairs of the high school chromebooks was approved.
