The board of education last evening accepted a recommendation to increase student and adult lunch prices by one dime for the coming school year.


That sets the rates at a dollar-70 for Rissler; a dollar-95 at the middle and high schools; and two-35 for an adult.

Calculations developed by the U-S-D-A determined Trenton is required to increase lunch prices by eight cents to meet compliance. There's no change in prices for the school breakfast.

Dennis Gutshall reported Trenton is among the first group of schools to be reviewed during the coming year by (the state) department of elementary and secondary education on meeting nutritional food service guidelines of U-S-D-A.

Related to those new guidelines is a significant increase in price for bakery products. The board accepted a bid from Trenton HyVee for the bakery products.As one example, Gutshall reported the required (53%) whole grain wheat bread will now cost a dollar-68 per loaf when a dollar and five cents was paid last year.

Among other bids, the board voted to continue with current suppliers: Prairie Farms of Brookfield for dairy products and MFA Oil of Trenton for number two diesel.

A surplus I-Mac computer was sold to Dustin Etter for 125 dollars. The board rejected nine other bids as too low and will likely include the computers in a surplus property auction.

The annual tax levy hearing will start the egular August 13th board meeting.

M-S-B-A language clarifications were accepted on four policies related to the federal affordable care act affecting school employees.
