Starting in 2018-19, AESD will begin using the Community Eligibility Provision for our district. This is from the Department of Education through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, which allows schools in low-income areas to provide meal services to their students at no cost.
That means all students this year eat free of charge! There's no more applications required, or fees needed to be paid to receive meals for students.
