Conneaut School District students will not see an increase in breakfast and lunch prices when school begins next month on August 28, for the 2013 - 2014 year.

Prices were set by the Conneaut School District Board of Education when they met in regular June voting session with seven of nine members present.

Those attending were Dr. Carol Bocan, Lorri Drumm, Kathy Hootman, Gina McCauley, Jody Sperry, Dr. Walter Thomas, and David Schaef. Absent were Brian Boyce and Don Ellis, Jr., who was attending a family funeral.

Lunch costs are $1.75 for elementary students, $2.00 middle and high school students; 40¢ student reduced lunches, $1.00 student breakfasts, 30¢ student reduced breakfasts, and $2.50 adult lunches.

The school district approved contracting with the Edinboro based Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit #5 to provide English as second language services for the upcoming school year based on the number of students enrolled in the program. Five such students were enrolled at the end of the recently completed 2012-13 school year.


School directors approved a resolution to be sent to area state representatives asking for changes in the Cyber School Funding formula.

Conneaut has paid out over $3.6 million in the past 5 years while receiving reimbursement in the amount of $386,221.

Cyber schools receive amounts based on local costs rather than on cyber and charter school’s actual costs to educate students.

Further, local school districts are required to pay charter and cyber charter schools for their employer pension contributions with the state also reimbursing the charter schools for up to 50 percent of their pension contributions, thus allowing charter schools to receive payments for the same costs twice.

Numerous coaches were appointed to various positions including a new boy’s head soccer coach, Robert Blake, replacing Alan Wise who resigned.

Pat Gould was re-appointed head football coach with the CASH football team adding General McLane to its fall schedule in place of Conneaut, Ohio. That game will take place at GM on Friday, Sept. 27. Meadville remains on the schedule as well.

Tim Schleicher and Leirin Baker will lead girl’s volleyball, Kris Cornell returns as CC coach, Brian Kebort remains girl’s soccer coach, Bob Slevin, golf coach, and Bill Stevenson, girls basketball coach. Bob Leupold was appointed boy’s varsity basketball coach while Bill Merritt was approved as a volunteer in boy’s basketball.
