The following is from the July 13 meeting of the Laguna Beach Unified School District Board of Education meeting.
Board members welcomed the new superintendent, Sherine Smith, to her first school board meeting. Smith thanked the board for their warm welcome and support thus far, and said she hopes to "stay on the path" the district is on in terms of setting goals and making accomplishments to the educational system.
Raising the bar on nutrition
Norma Shelton, assistant superintendent of business services, announced that the district is on its way to devising a healthier meal plan in the cafeterias for next year. The drawbacks, she said, are that it's costly to buy organic and healthy foods, which could mean a 75-cent increase in school lunches.
