All Families are encouraged to apply for Educational Benefits

All families are encouraged to complete an Educational Benefits Application, formerly the free and reduced-price meals application. Your children may qualify! Applications for the 2023-24 school year are available.

While meals are free for all students, all families are highly encouraged to complete an Application for Educational Benefits. Your approved application provides critical funding to our school district. This compensatory aid helps increase funding for teachers, paraprofessionals and social workers to include math and reading support. An approval for educational benefits also allows families to receive discounted Activities/Community Education fees.
