OXFORD — Today’s economy has increased prices on many items including the proposed meal prices for students attending Granville County Public Schools, said Patricia Crute, child nutrition director, and Vickie Hines, interim chief financial officer during the June 6 school board meeting. 
Crute and Hines recommended a .10 increase for breakfast and lunch prices.
Crute said the cost of food and supply chain difficulties are part of the reason for the increased prices. 
Grades K-5 will now pay $1.10 for breakfast and $2.60 for lunch. Grades 6-12 will pay $1.35 for breakfast and $2.85 for lunch.
Parents may apply for free and reduced priced meals on the GCPS website under the Child Nutrition tab.
Granville County may be in line for an electric bus with a grant from the Department of Environmental Quality. 
The county has three buses that meet the criteria of age and engine type to be replaced by an electric bus. 
The grant awards will be announced between July and August.
The board approved a recruitment and retention plan that will span 2022-24. The plan is designed to help recruit new employees and retain the current permanent staff.
The plan will use Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds or ESSER Funds.
The board has a work session scheduled for 4 p.m. on June 20 at the Mary Potter Center for Education.
