Poll: Should Spotsy schools have a no-charge meals policy for students without funds?

The Spotsylvania School Board implemented a new policy that limits the number of meals students can charge after their accounts reach a zero balance.

As of April 1, elementary and middle schoolers can charge up to five meals, high school students one. After that they get an alternative meal, likely a cheese sandwich and milk.

The division has collected about $29,000 since the change went into effect but parents still owed more than $64,000 as of last week, I report in a story in today’s Free Lance-Star.

Board member Ray Lora says students shouldn’t be allowed to charge any meals if they don’t have any money in their accounts.
