Plymouth Community SchoolsMonday evening the Plymouth Community School Board approved the recommendation to increases meal pricing for the 2019-2020 school year.

Kandi Tinkey, corporation treasurer said during the onsite review by the School Lunch Nutrition Program, the administrative review  determined that the corporation needed to raise prices for the school breakfast and lunch program to meet their requirements.

The review showed the school was not charging enough and that they would also have to do a corrective action plan.

The Plymouth School Board approved an increase to student breakfasts from $1.20 to $1.25 while adult prices will also go up $.10 to $1.60.  The reduced breakfast price stays the same at $.30.  Student lunch prices in grades K-6 will increase from $1.95 to $2.05 while the reduced price will remain the same at $.40. Students in grades 7 thru 12 will see the price of lunch increase from $2.05 to $2.15 and the reduced price will remain $.40.

Milk cost increases to $.35 up $.05.  Tinkey said the ala cart menu will also see an increase in price of $.10 per item.

The school treasurer told the board the increases are not desired by the corporation but basically mandated by the USDA and the School Lunch Nutrition Program.

The Plymouth School Board voted to approve the increases.
