There's some good news for families today.
Don Haydon, chief facilities and operations officer, said today that Wake will not raise school meal prices for the upcoming school year. In December, staff had warned that increases would be likely for the 2009-10 school year.
“[Marilyn Moody, senior director for nutrition] thought this would not be the time to tax people with another meal increase," Haydon told the school board.
Haydon said that child nutrition will dip into its reserves again to make up for the deficit at the end of this fiscal year.
