Children need healthy meals to learn. Corinth School District will be offering healthy meals to all students at no cost every school day in School Year 2021-2022. Your child(ren) will receive free breakfast and lunch meals every school day regardless of your household’s income.
Families are still encouraged to submit a school meal application for free or reduced-price meal benefits because this information may be used for other programs, such as Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), Federal and State funding for your school, reduced registration fees for academic tests, free or discounted fees for athletic programs, discounted rates for internet service, and many more!
5 Reasons Why Free-and-Reduced Meal Applications are Still Essential for Your District BEWARE the APP GAP! * Credit to PaySchools
1. Household income survey Free-and-reduced meal applications can also serve as a district household income survey, assisting your schools in qualifying for federal and state programs.
2. Title I funding Districts and states tie free-and-reduced school meal application counts to Title I funding eligibility and allocation.
3. Data continuity Data gaps create blind spots. Continuously gathering data reveals trends and accurately documents circumstances.
4. Additional family benefits Families can use free-and-reduced meal status to qualify for additional programs, such as reduced school and activity fees in your district, housing benefits, and more.
5. Family hesitancy Families allowed to skip free-and-reduced meal applications one year may balk when asked to complete them the next year.
So please, continue to complete your lunch for every school year! It is important!
