School lunch prices up 5 cents
Placeholder Image

Platteville Public Schools set its lunch prices before the 2014–15 school year began.

The school district then found itself required by federal regulations to raise its lunch prices for fifth- through 12th-graders by 5 cents. The School Board voted Sept. 22 for the price increase.

School district business manager Art Beaulieu said the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Paid Lunch Equity rules required weighted lunch prices — the cost of full-price, reduced and free lunches — of $2.65 per lunch. The original price didn’t meet that level, requiring the increase to $2.70 per lunch, Beaulieu said.
