Prescott Schools Providing Student Meals At No Charge
Tuesday, July 02, 2019
The Prescott School District is pleased to announce the district will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) during the 2019 - 2020 school year providing meals, regardless of eligibility category, at NO CHARGE for all students at the following schools; Prescott High School, Prescott Jr High School and Prescott Elementary School that participate in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program. This is the 5th year Prescott will offer this beneficial program to all students. CEP is made possible through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Special Assistance Certification and Reimbursement Community Eligibility Provision. Federal reimbursement for meals is based on the Identified Student Percentage (ISP) established by the District in April 2019. The information used to establish the ISP will be made available only to State and Federal officials for review. All adults, e.g., visitors, teachers, support staff members, and administrators of the district must assume the full cost of the meal which is $2.50 for Breakfast and $4.00 for Lunch.
In accordance with Federal civil rights law and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its Agencies, offices, and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program.
