NEWARK — Proceeds from athletic concessions at the Cedar Ridge School District were a topic of discussion when the Cedar Ridge School Board met July 19.
The board agreed that one-half of all secondary athletic concession proceeds go to the district’s athletic activity fund and one-half to the athletic booster club, a non-school account. The booster club manages the concessions, which also includes workers, supplies and bills.
Meanwhile, payment of athletic awards for students will come from activity funds.
