Making CEP Work with Low ISPs and Partial District Implementation

Thursday, May 5, 3pm ET

The pandemic has highlighted the value of offering school meals at no charge to all students. Community Eligibility provides an excellent opportunity for high poverty schools to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students beyond the 2021-2022 school year. The community eligibility reimbursement formula determines what percent of meals are reimbursed at the free and paid rates. Thousands of schools and districts across the country have experienced the benefits of community eligibility by participating with ISPs below 60 percent and by having individual schools participate within a district. Join this webinar to learn about the strategies and resources available for making community eligibility work with low ISPs and/or partial district implementation. Register here.
