Funding based on free/reduced lunch count

<img src="/images/Article/7758.jpg">

Part of the education funding for school districts is calculated using the number of students who qualify for free and reduced-price school meals. This is based on the school district receiving completed Application for Educational Benefits forms from families who qualify for free and reduced-price meals. The school district can only access these dollars if families who may qualify for the free/reduced lunch program apply. Families are asked to take time to complete the application form even if their children do not intend to eat school lunches. The Application for Educational Benefits form was mailed to the families of all students in August. Anyone who did not receive one or is new to the district can request an application by calling 963-3171 or print a copy from www.maplelake.k12.mn.us. All completed application forms are confidential and should be returned to the food service director as early as possible. Students who qualified for free or reduced-price lunches last year are required to re-apply each school year. This information is only accessible to the food service director and the district office staff.
