The Bowie School of Trustees met for their first summer session at 5:30PM today. Items on the agenda included cafeteria prices for the year. The plan is for the school lunch price to increase from $2.40 to $2.50. This price change will count for the 2011-2012 school year. Superintendent Steven Monkres said price increases are mandated by the state this year. Also on the Trustees agenda is the Principal Kelly Shackelford's proposal for a closed campus. The proposal hopes to increase the amount of instructional time during the day. Monkres has said that the plan would include incentives to students to earn off-campus privileges on special occasions if they meet grades, attendance, and discipline requirements.
The 2011-2012 Montague County Tax Appraisal District was also be reviewed. Superintendent Monkres updated the board on school finance and district summer projects.
