Is participation in NSLP required to participate in the state's program
How can get it to quit echoing
Are schools within a SFA participating in this program required to participate in breakfast?
School Nutrition Training
Hello Vicky, it may be echoing on your end if you are logged into the webinar twice. Happy to help you troubleshoot via private message.
Still can't hear.
Just saw the answer re: breakfast participation, thanks
School Nutrition Training
Sorry to hear that you can't hear Donna. Good news is that we are recording this training and the recording will be available in The Dish and on our website. I am pulling up the call in phone number so you can dial in if you would like.
To confirm, the state will reimburse SFAs a "free reimbursement rate" for ALL meals regardless of CEP ISP and/or paid eligible qualifications?? (if opting in)

do the free meals include preK students?
Do/will you have any parent templates regarding communication about this proposition? Seems to be a lot of confused families with regards to timing/implementation, etc. Thanks!
You have mentioned a few times that SFA's will have to opt in to this program. Does that mean this is an optional program or are we all expected to opt in?

With participation hand in hand with NSLP and annual applications needed from families, can district's require the application to be filled out?
We saw applications drop down to almost nothing the past two years during the waivers. Our administration is concerned about title funding/at-risk funding for the district if we opt in. We likely will not have CEP eligible schools SY 23-24. How do I assure them they will still have funding if our families don't submit applications?
What happens to the districts not on CEP
For the new program, if you do not qualify for CEP will families still have to fill out applications?
tagging on Mathew’s question, will we be able to market to our family all the benefits outside the meal benefit. School fees, field trips, city rec discounts.
If we have half-day preschool, will schools start feeding those children after morning preschool or before afternoon preschool?
If we have some schools that are CEP eligible, and some not, how will this impact applications, claim process, etc.?
Stupid question-why would a district not opt in? I mean is there something I am missing-it's free meals for everyone, fully, unlike in the past with CEP, with only some being paid.
Can we use the combined form at ALL schools, including the non CEP schools?
(Re: Title I and At-Risk) But districts often use F&R data to allocate funding to their charters... so how can we figure this out... is this something we need to work with districts on directly?
why do we collect free and reduced apps for non CEP is doing free meals for all? Sorry if I missed this!
if* doing free meals, sorry
This collecting applications is crazy to me, why would families do this???? Meals are being served free to all
How do you suggest communicating to parents that we must collect applications but everyone will receive free meals whether they qualify on the application or not?
Just want to make sure if we are not a CEP school/district we can require families to complete an F/R application?
During Covid parents did not fill out applications because they knew lunch was free. I do not see them filling out free applications I see this being a problem how do we go about this and if we choose not to opt in the program with this being advertised how do we keep parents from being angry about us not opting into the program.
I think people might be a little confused on where all the funding is coming from. It is my impression is that without federal funding for those who qualify for free and reduced (as identified through free and reduced apps), there will not be enough state funding to cover all meals. We NEED the federal funding for this to work.
What is the advantage of participating in CEP over not?
Are there concerns that over time, non CEP schools/districts that have opted in are going to get less applications that would qualify for free or reduced-price meals and therefore will receive less federal funding which means the state will have to pick up more of the cost? Just curious about this.
Sorry if I missed this, but if only some of our schools qualify for CEP and other don't... do we have to track meals differently for each of those "types" of schools? CEP by count only... and those that are not qualified for CEP must be tracked by student and eligibility. And same for application collection- different for each type of school? CEP or not???
I echo the sentiment that apps will not be filled out, but we'll be claiming all these "paid" meals and state funding will fall short with the increased participation.
Basically our ISP will be solely DC students
can you explain what the state pays for?
paid kids? or all
Can you further explain grouping? Only by district, or by region?
