LA VERNIA -- Students and teachers in the La Vernia Independent School District will see a slight increase in the prices of school meals in the upcoming school year.

During the June 24 regular board meeting, the trustees and Superintendent Tom Harvey heard from Director of Child Nutrition Vicki Spessard about the upcoming changes.

Spessard proposed raising the price of adult meals from $3 to $3.50.

According to Spessard, the district had been able to give teachers a discount on their meals; this is no longer possible, as there is no state reimbursement for adult meals.

Also, due to fluctuating milk and produce prices, Spessard suggested raising school breakfast prices. Currently, she said, the district pays $1.60 for breakfasts, but students only pay $1.50. She recommended a price increase for students to $1.75 and from $2 to $2.25 for adults.

In addition, Spessard recommended increasing lunch prices at the primary and intermediate campuses from $2.10 to $2.25 and at the junior high and high school campuses from $2.35 to $2.50.

She said with these changes, the district will see a revenue increase of $25,359 in one year.

The board approved the recommendations, effective for the 2013-14 school year.

Also at the meeting, Assistant Superintendent Diane Fisher updated the board on a recent district improvement plan committee meeting. Fisher said the committee wanted to start meeting this summer to get the most input for changes for the new school year.

Since public schools in Texas will no longer use the CSCOPE educational support system to plan lessons, following a recent decision by the state Legislature, teachers on the committee are busy looking for new resources.

District math and science coordinator Dana Grubb said the district has no need to buy a lot of lesson plans, as teachers are capable of making their own, and are used to producing their lesson plans in their own unique ways. However, the district would like to have resources available for teachers.

The committee plans to continue meeting every two weeks throughout the school year.

Also during the meeting, the trustees were informed of the pending retirement June 30 of Technology Director Allen Bordelon, who has served the district for more than 15 years. Cheryl Young, currently in charge of instructional technology, will serve as the interim technology director until a replacement for Bordelon is found.


In attendance: Trustees Janette Chall, James Barnett, Kimi Kravitz, Dr. Cody Miller, Susan Reinhard, David Watson, and Janice Gimbel; Superintendent Tom Harvey; Director of Child Nutrition Vicki Spessard; Technology Director Allen Bordelon.
