Meal Application

Important meal information changes

With the passing of House Bill 1878, our district is participating in a federal program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This program allows all children in our school to eat for free. However, many of our educational programs are supported with state funds that are based on our Free and Reduced data. Since we will no longer be collecting the Free and Reduced-Price meal applications, we must collect Family Income Survey data instead. This form helps us collect household information for all students attending CEP schools.

This survey will be mailed to families that are new to the district or are not directly certified for free / reduced meals. It is also available via the button below. Please take a moment to complete this form and return it to your child's school. One form per household, please.

NOTE: A household may apply for benefits at any time during the school year. Household members do not have to be U.S. citizens for children to qualify. Completing this form has no impact on immigration status.

Any student that has been Directly Certified for free or reduced-price school meals or who has a Family Income Survey on file that meets the income guidelines for the Free / Reduced-Price Meal Application may be eligible for decreased fees to participate in other school programs. Families must complete the Consent to Share Program Eligibility Information Form to allow your eligibility status to be shared for other program benefits.
