Brandywine lunch prices could increasePublished 8:04pm Monday, July 9, 2012
Students and teachers will likely have to pay a little more next year for their milk and meals at Brandywine Community Schools.
Superintendent John Jarpe informed the school board Monday evening the price of lunch, breakfast and milk needs to increase 10 cents next year in order for the district to become compliant with federal regulations.
The federal regulations, Jarpe said, say schools must charge a price that is in line with what federal regulation deems a meal is worth.
The 10-cent increase means breakfast would cost $1.40 for students and $1.80 for adults. Lunch would cost $2.25 for elementary students, $2.45 for students at the middle school and high school levels and $3.25 for adults. Milk would cost 50 cents across the board.
The board did not take action on the price increase and did not discuss it. Jarpe said action is not needed at the moment.
