710.2 Free or Reduced Cost Meal Eligibility

Code No. 710.2


Students enrolled and attending school in the school district, who are unable to afford the special milk program, the cost or a portion of the cost of the school lunch, breakfast and supplemental foods, will be provided the school food program services at no cost or at a reduced cost.

It is the responsibility of the Food Services Director or designee to determine if a student qualifies for free or reduced cost school food services.  Students, whom the building principal believes are improperly nourished, will not be denied the school food program services simply because the paperwork has not been completed.

Employees, students not qualifying for free or reduced eligibility, and others will be required to purchase meals at prices established by the board.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop administrative regulations for implementing this policy.
