Hoping to ease the burden on K-8 students who receive reduced breakfast and/or lunch, the Vallejo City Unified School Board of Education Wednesday night approved waiving the fee for the 2014-15 fiscal year.
K-8 students placed in the reduced price category were required to pay 30 cents for breakfast and 40 cents for lunch, while high school students in the same category were not required to pay any amount for breakfast or lunch, according to a staff report.
“I think this makes a lot of sense,” said trustee Adrienne Waterman. “It’s hard to remember to put 30 cents in the pocket.”
