Muncie Community Schools implements the the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP):
What does this mean for you and your children attending a participating school? All enrolled students, at a school that is implementing the SSO waiver or the CEP during the 2021-2022 school year, are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge to your household. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in the meal programs without having to pay a fee or complete an application.
Why should we fill out an application? The SSO waiver and CEP pertains only to meals and does not extend to other educational benefits. Some examples of other educational benefits may include: curricular material (textbook) assistance, test/exam fee reduction or waiver, and eligibility for other discounts or program opportunities. All students must pay curricular material (textbook) fees unless you have been notified in writing that your child has been approved for free curricular materials for the 2021-2022 school year.
Who may receive curricular assistance and other educational benefits? The following are ways in which children may be approved to receive curricular material and other educational benefits: children in households receiving SNAP (Food Stamps) or TANF benefits; foster children who are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court; homeless or migrant children identified by the school’s liaison; and households with a gross income that is within the limits of the Federal Guidelines. To apply for Curricular and other educational benefits, please complete and application below.
