The Clinton Community Unit School District 15 will raise their breakfast and lunch prices next school year in accordance with federal guidelines.
Clinton Schools Superintendent Curt Nettles explains the decision to increase lunch and breakfast prices were to meet federal guidelines. Approximately half of the students in the district qualify for the free and reduced lunch program. The federal government wants school districts to use their own funds and then they will reimburse the districts for their lunch program.
Lunches will increase from $1.75 to $2.00 for kindergarten through eighth grade, $2.00 to $2.25 for high school, and breakfast will increase from $1.25 to $1.50.
