New School Board Charge Policy for 2014-15.

School Nutrition Program

Division Wide Charge Policy / Collection Procedures

The United State Department of Agriculture’s regulations for School Nutrition states that no free meals may be served unless a student has an approve meal application.

In order to ensure compliance with these regulations the following policies and practices are in effect:

  • Elementary Students will be allowed to accumulate no more than five (5) charges. 
  • Middle and High School Students will be allowed to accumulate no more than (3) charges.                       
  •  No child will be allowed to purchase a la carte items if they have a negative balance on their meal account.
  •    Balances (positive and negative) will be carried forward from year to year.
  •   Administrators may exclude students from extra –curricular activities or restrict privileges for students who have a debt.  Students of parents/guardians who have a payment plan and are making payments to reduce their debt will not be excluded or restricted.  No student diplomas, grades or academic records will be held for non-payment.

      Students will not go hungry. The School Nutrition staff can provide the student with a sandwich, milk and fruit/vegetable to serve as their lunch; breakfast will consist of cereal, toast and milk.


Parents are encouraged to apply for free/reduced meals by contacting the cafeteria manager or school office, if they have not already applied or their income has changed.
