    Educational Benefits Applications (Free & Reduced)

    Each application submitted results in more funding for our district which in turn provides more resources for your child(ren)'s education.

    Even though students are receiving free school meals at this time (due to temporary USDA funding) we still need the Educational Benefits Application filled out each school year by each family. Not only does the application provide household benefits including free or reduced meals, activity fees, and testing rates (ACT fees for example), it also provides compensatory revenue for our district.
