February 5, 2020

SNA and FRAC have partnered together to bring you a webinar focused on community eligibility. It’s that time of year for school districts interested in the Community Eligibility Provision, a federal option that allows high poverty schools to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students, to start conversations with district administrators about implementation for the 2020-2021 school year. Community eligibility reduces administrative burdens by eliminating the school meal application and increases participation because all students eat at no cost, making it a win-win for school districts and students alike.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU or 1 CPEU for RNDs/NDTRs.

  1. Explain the basics of how Title I funding and community eligibility interact.
  2. Outline best practices for communicating with key stakeholders in the school to gain buy-in for community eligibility implementation.
  3. Apply tips and best practices when evaluating the financial viability of community eligibility.
