CHAMPLAIN - The student-run store at Northeastern Clinton Central High School will continue selling snacks and other disputed items - for now.
A Jan. 13 meeting of the NCCS board of education was expected to further discuss the matter, but resulted in no action, said district superintendent Peter J. Turner.
"Nothing's changed at this point," said Turner. "No further decision was made."
The issue of students selling items such as specialty drinks, chips, pretzels and Slim Jims came into discussion at the board of education's Jan. 6 meeting. There, the board expressed the concerns of Chartwells, the district's Charlotte, N.C.-based food service provider, with a loss in revenue following the opening of the school store in September.
At the Jan. 6 meeting, two students spoke in favor of allowing the store to continue selling items considered in competition with those offered by Chartwells. After hearing concerns, the board decided to table discussion for the Jan. 13 meeting.
With no official decision made on the matter, Turner said the board of education's next opportunity to discuss limiting the store's sales would be at its next regularly scheduled meeting, Tuesday, Feb. 3.
The meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m., will be held in the middle school-high school library.
