School lunch price set to go up

SoVaNow.com / May 12, 2014



Halifax County school trustees will meet tonight with a number of items on the agenda, from school lunch price hikes to a commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling that paved the way for integrated schools.

The trustees’ public session begins at 7:30 p.m. following a closed session to consider personnel and legal matters at 6 p.m. The School Board convenes in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex.

Several items of old business, carried over from the April meeting, will be considered by trustees. They include a food plan for the delivery of meals to the Cluster Springs Early Learning Center, as well as review of bid responses from food services management companies.

In new business, trustees have a June 23 meeting ahead with the Halifax County Board of Supervisors, for the purpose of exploring cooperative ventures that could produce budget savings.

The School Board also is expected to approve the proposed school lunch price increases for the coming year.

A resolution commemorating the 60th anniversary of Brown vs. the Board of Education, the Supreme Court decision that overturned segregation, is also on the agenda.

Superintendent of Schools Merle Herndon will recognize the division art winners in the Virginia School Board’s Southern Region Art competition.
