Summary: As part of the renewal process the Board of Education can annually approve the contract up to the full five-year length of the contract. According to the Illinois State Board of Education and our original contract, the negotiated price increase must not exceed the most recent year’s Consumer Price Index (CPI), which has been set at 2.3% for December 2019. Organic Life has proposed an increase of 2.3%. In addition, due to the State-mandated minimum wage increase to $10.00 per hour, effective July 1, 2020, and an additional increase to $11.00 per hour, effective January 1, 2021, the Illinois State Board of Education Nutrition Department allows an additional fixed-wage fee to be paid by the District. The Minimum Wage Increase Calculation Worksheet presented estimates a total additional fixed wage fee of $26,410.37 for FY 2021.
