SISD adds 5 cents to school lunch price
STOCKDALE -- Students in the Stockdale Independent School District (ISD) will see a nickel increase in the price of their lunchroom meals for the next school year.
According to Business Manager Becky Stewart after the July 9 board of trustees meeting, the board adopted a 5-cent increase per meal on each campus.
The charge is due to a federal mandate, known as “Equity in school lunch pricing” in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service website, “Schools are required to charge students for paid meals at a price that is on average equal to the difference between free meal reimbursement and paid meal reimbursement.”
Prices for the lunches at the elementary school will be $2.05, while junior high/high school lunches will be $2.30 each. This does not affect the free and reduced meals program. Breakfast remains at no charge.
Also during the meeting, the board hired two teachers -- a high school Spanish teacher and an elementary school teacher. This action fills vacancies in the system; these are not new positions.
