Policy P4-26

The cafeteria program operated as the school lunch program shall be maintained on a self-sustaining basis. However, in the event that the funds appear to be insufficient, the board will consider and may appropriate such funds, as in its judgment, will sustain the current program.

All cafeteria funds shall be accounted for in a separate bank account and audited annually by a certified public accountant.

The board will subsidize the program to the extent of supplying some supervisory and clerical aid, utilities and building space.
