The Commerce Board of Education recently raised the price of its adult breakfast and lunch meals to meet federal guidelines.

Adult breakfast means will go from $1.75 to $2.00 while lunch will go from $3.25 to $3.55.


In personnel action, the BOE:

• hired Kelley Faulkner as an ELA teacher at Commerce Middle School.

• accepted the resignations of Kay Howington, receptionist at Commerce High School and Amy Hancock, ELA teacher at CMS.

• approved a leave of absence for Marcy Adams.


In other board action, the BOE approved:

• a spending resolution for July until the state can set its FY21 budget thereby allowing the school system to set its FY21 budget.

• accepting the May financial report which shows the system has $3.3 million in reserves.

• selling a list of surplus equipment
