The Plymouth School Board may not affect the pocketbooks students, or the parents who make the payments, next school year when it comes to meal prices.
During their meeting tonight, board members will receive a proposal to keep school lunch and breakfast prices unchanged compared to the previous year. Currently breakfast prices are $1.10.
Lunch prices vary a bit, costing $1.85 for students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Prices will remain $1.95 for students in grades 7 through 12.
As the proposal currently stands, meal prices for adults will rise. Breakfast prices will be increased by 15-cents. Lunch prices will jump by 25-cents.
The Board will also be considering a proposal from Superintendent Dan Tyree who will suggest adding one day onto the school-year calendar. The additional day will act as a make-up day for weather related school cancellations.
The School Corporation may also be advertising bids for the sale of used computers. Bids for the Macbook’s and Macbook pro’s are expected to be turned in by the morning of June 19th.
Tonight’s meeting begins at 7:00 EDT at the School Corporation’s Central office.
