North Judson-San Pierre teachers will soon have to pay a bit more to buy breakfast at school. The school board has already voted to keep student meal prices the same for the coming school year, but Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin says the Department of Education had an error in calculating the adult breakfast price.
“We needed to raise the price by one penny,” she explains. “We decided to avoid the pennies and raise it by five cents, so now our adults will pay $1.85 for their breakfast meal. This does not affect the students whatsoever.” The increase was formally approved by the school board Tuesday.
Zupin says board members also approved a round of policy updates recommended by consultant NEOLA. She says they simply bring the policies up to date with new state and federal mandates, and make sure the school corporation is in compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act.
