A budget for the next academic year at the Spickard school has Administrator Mike Garrett anticipating it to be quote, "A break even year".

Administrator Mike Garrett anticipates the budget will be within ten thousand dollars on either side of revenues and expenditures depending on state funding.  The budget is close to 750 thousand dollars for the year.

The only significant change, according to Garrett, is with food services.  The school district adopted a new food plan providing more choices for students including an increase in fresh fruits and vegetables.  Garrett reported the last three year average cost of breakfast and lunch has been $1.45 per meal.

Spickard piloted the new program in May and it revealed a cost of 93-cents per meal.
He anticipates Spickard can keep the cost under one dollar throughout the year while
providing more nutritious meals for students.

Among other information from the Spickard school board meeting last evening, Administrator Garrett discussed his intentions of meeting more often with the public during the next school year. Surplus property will be on display and open for silent bids during the last part of July.

The school will be seeking bids to improve the foundation support on the south
side of the building along Pine Street. Summer Maintenance includes stripping and
waxing floors and painting rooms with minor maintenance and repair work taking place.

The board agreed to remain in a co-op with Pleasant View R-6 and Laredo schools for a PE/Health Teacher. An executive Session was held to discuss personnel and students. No announcement was made.
