DAYTON – School lunch prices will increase by a dime this coming school year.
“We are required by the State Department of Education to increase our lunch prices by 10 cents for the 2014-15 school year,” said superintendent Spencer Barzee. “We did not increase our lunch prices last year.”
Marcia Kendall, program director, proposed a 10-cent increase across-the-board and it was approved by trustees at their recent meeting.
“The Harold B. Lee Elementary lunch price was $1.65 last year and it will be increased to $1.75 in August when school begins. The price last year at both the Beutler Middle and West Side High schools was $1.95 and the new price will be $2.05,” he said.
in other business, Barzee said the district will be contracting with Preston School District to offer preschool services to students who qualify.
“Despite our best efforts, West Side was unable to find a teacher with the necessary certification,” he added.
Barzee said the state department has asked the district to develop and maintain a strategic plan that focuses on improving student performance and priorities, as determined by the school district.
