The Board directs the administration to develop procedures for the management of meal charges and unpaid meal charges. The procedures allow for students to receive the daily nutrition they need, minimize the identification of students with insufficient funds to pay, maintain the integrity of the school food service account, and includes guidelines for the collection of delinquent meal charges. The procedures are provided to all parents and all District and school staff responsible for enforcement at the start of each school year.
Procedures for unpaid meal charges:
1. Letters are sent home weekly with each student stating the balance due.
2. Students will be given charging privileges for meals, unless the parent requests that the student not be able to charge meals.
