School Meal Applications and Verification

Media Release Prototype

Regulations require that prior to or during the first week of school, a public release be made to the local news media, the unemployment office and any major employers who are contemplating layoffs within the school’s attendance area. When sent to the news media, the letter to parents, application form, and a complete income scale (free and reduced-price guidelines) or the same information put in a narrative form will constitute a public release. TDA has provided this prototype media release or media release Provision 2 and media release CEP for CEs to customize and use each school year.
