La Vernia school lunches to increase by 10 cents
GREGORY RIPPS — Vicki Spessard, child nutrition director for the La Vernia Independent School District, discusses a proposed hike in the price of school lunches with school board member Dr. Cody Miller during the April 6 board meeting.

The price of school lunches in the La Vernia Independent School District will increase by 10 cents each, following a decision April 6 by the district’s board of trustees.

Vicki Spessard, child nutrition director for the district, explained that the increase is due to calculations mandated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“This is not a recommendation; this is required,” she said.

The 10-cent increase applies to primary, intermediate, junior high, and high school lunches. Current student meals cost:

•Breakfast -- $1.75, all campuses

•Lunch -- $2.25, primary and intermediate; $2.50, junior high and high school

•Reduced-price lunches and breakfast will be unchanged.

Earlier in the meeting, trustees approved technological improvements, including:

•A three-year master service agreement with USFon Inc. of West Lake Hills, Texas, to continue Internet access, at an annual cost of $77,280

•Purchase of computers and monitors at an estimated cost of $49,200, to provide every high school teacher with a desktop workstation

•Purchase of 30 projectors in the high school at an estimated cost of $14,220

•Mounting projectors in the high school. Although the original cost was $43,744, district Technology Director Scott Laleman said the final cost will be much less.

In other action, trustees:

•Approved the purchase of Teach Smart and Play Smart learning materials for the special education and the dual language pre-kindergarten programs, at a cost of $59,988

•Approved an agreement with the Texas Education Agency to implement a new system to evaluate principals during the 2015-16 school year.
