Frequently Asked Questions
Will I need to complete a new free/reduce application for my student after the new year?
No, the District will use the application approved at the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year.
If your family’s financial situation has changed during the school year, a new application can be submitted to the Business Office for approval.
