Free and Reduced Policy Statement

Published: 8/2/2016 5:16 PM

Each LEA participating in the NSLP or SBP must have an approved free and reduced price policy statement on file with SCN.  The Policy Statement is not a single document, but a compilation of documents.  The following forms are templates for districts to use. The forms are grouped based upon optional provision participation to ease use.  Any material change to a form must be approved by a SCN Consultant.
