School system releases current meal policy

Published 12:43pm Friday, August 31, 2012

In operation of child feeding programs, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex, color, national origin, age or disability.

Under the provision of the free and reduced-price meal policy, CNP Secretary Kim McKinney will review the applications and determine eligibility.

If a parent is dissatisfied with the ruling or the official, he may wish to discuss it in more detail with that official.

If a parent wishes to review the ruling further after discussing it with the school, he or she has a right to a fair hearing. This can be done by making a request either orally or in writing to Superintendent Dave Hayden, whose address is 1705 Lay Dam Road, Clanton, AL 35045.

Hearing procedures are outlined in the free and reduced-price meal policy.

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the household should contact the school to file a new application. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household income falls at or below the level shown above.

A complete copy of the policy is on file in each school and in the office of the Superintendent of Chilton County Schools, where it may be reviewed by any interested party.

All questions on the free and reduced-price application must be completed. Failure to include information on household members, income or SNAP (Food Stamp) case number, information on social security and the signature of an adult household member will result in the denial of benefits.
