This was the final meeting for board vice president Suzyn Price, who announced her intent to resign at their April 4 meeting.
Before her departure, Price recounted some of the board’s accomplishments and reiterated her reasons for leaving.
“As I’ve said before, the crux of this issue is we’ve been together too long. We’ve accomplished so many things for which we’re rightly proud of and our relationships affect the school district, so it’s time for new energy, new ideas, new chemistry,” said Price.
She also expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to serve on the board for the past thirteen years.
Price added, “This has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my professional life and I thank every person I’ve met and I’ve known, for this exceptional experience, for their exceptional work and commitment to the students in District 203. Thank you.”
The District will now begin the process to fill her vacancy.
Also at the meeting, the board approved a $0.10 increase in school lunch prices for all grade levels, making elementary meals $2.60, junior high’s $2.65 and high school’s $2.70.
But milk carton prices will stay the same at $0.45 each.
The increase was made to help meet federal guidelines as required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
