Wa-Nee Schools refuse to increase school lunch costs
WAKARUSA -- Parents of students in the Wa-Nee district will be relieved to know that their schools will be among the few in Elkhart County that won't need to increase lunch prices for the 2014-15 school year, as was revealed in information distributed among members of the Wa-Nee Community Board of School Trustees during their Monday evening session.
Since July 1, 2011, schools have been required to charge students for paid meals at a price that is, on average, equal to the difference between free meal reimbursement and paid meal reimbursement. Districts that charge below that amount have since been required to increase the price of school meals at a minimum of 10 cents per year until that margin is eliminated.
