Certain school boards; student meals; participation in the Community Eligibility Provision. Requires each school board that governs a local school division that contains any public elementary or secondary school that is eligible to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to apply to FNS to participate in CEP for each such school. The bill provides that the Superintendent for Public Instruction shall issue a waiver to this requirement upon determination that participation in CEP is not financially viable for a school or group of schools. The Department of Education shall develop a process and criteria for evaluating such waiver requests. Read the Bill »
