Eligible students, as determined by appropriate school officials based on guidelines established under the national school lunch program, will be provided nutritionally acceptable meals at no cost or at a reduced cost, if they are unable to pay the regular price.
The criteria for determining a student's need and the procedures for securing no-cost and reduced-cost lunches for the student will be outlined and made known each year by the Board. The criteria and procedures are established at the state/federal level.
The students who participate in no-cost or reduced-cost meals will not be distinguished in any way from students who pay the regular price. Their names will not be made known to any person except such staff members as needed to make the special arrangements for the students.
