The costs of breakfasts and lunches, the second interim budget report, and adoption of a district initial contract proposal to teachers is on the agenda when Travis Unified leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.
Ken Forrest, the district’s chief business official, will tell the five-member governing board that cafeteria meal costs largely match those of surrounding districts.
However, a reduction in the state’s reimbursement rate and an increase in labor, food and supply costs require a 10-cent increase for breakfasts and lunches.
The price increase will help the cafeteria fund to continue to bear “indirect costs” from the general fund and continue with program improvements, he will report, according to agenda documents.
Trustees are expected to approve the increase, which will take effect at the outset of the new fiscal year, July 1.
