The Mount Vernon R-V School Board Meeting held its regular meeting on Thursday, July 20.  Below are some items of interest:

 

  • Summer School ADA increased this year by nearly 48 students.  We saw big increases in enrollment at both the Elementary and Intermediate Schools in addition to higher attendance rates in the Middle and High Schools.  Overall, it appears the new schedule had a positive impact on our Summer School Program.
  • The Board agreed to set the Employee Board Luncheon for Tuesday, August 15 at noon in the High School Commons.
  • The Board voted to set the Annual Levy Hearing just prior to the next regular Board Meeting on August 24 at 7:30 PM.
  • Representatives from LJ Hart & Company were on hand to present an opportunity for the Board to refinance the District's 2013 Series Bonds. 
    • The Board authorized a proposal to sell $2,500,000 worth of General Obligation Refunding Bonds at an average interest of 3.02%, compared to the Series 2013 Refunded bonds which were carrying an average interest rate of about 3.66%.
    • Through this refinancing, the District was able to reduce its future interest expense by $245,946.
    • Refinancing was made possible by the combination of lower interest rates now as compared to 2013 and the fact the entire $2,500,000 portion of the Series 2013 Bonds were not subject to a prepayment penalty as of March 1, 2018.
  • The National School Lunch Program: School Food Service Account Revenue Amendments Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 forbids schools from supplementing our food service program with money from the federal free and reduced program.
    • We are required to raise lunch prices to compensate.
    • However, we have the opportunity to phase in these changes annually by instituting a cap to the increase of 10 cents per meal. 
    • As a result, meal prices for the 2017-18 school year are as follows:
  2016-2017 2017-2018
Breakfast $1.35 $1.45
K-5 Lunch $1.75 $1.85
6-8 Lunch $1.95 $2.05
9-12 Lunch $2.00 $2.10
Adult Lunch $2.35 $2.45

 

  • The Board also voted to maintain the same admission cost for District athletic events for the 2017-18 school year.  These prices have been consistent for the past 7 years and are as follows:
