CCSD#1 Meal Charge Policy

Converse County School District #1 recognizes that healthy, nutritious meals are an important component to student readiness and ability to learn.

This policy shall be included in Back to School letters, student handbooks, the CCSD1 website, and provided to any family joining our district during the course of the school year.

General nutrition requirements state “Schools must provide nutritious and well-balanced meals to all the children they serve.”
The district’s Nutrition Services Department is an “enterprise fund” and shall not have a negative balance at the close of the fiscal year.  Unpaid charges place a financial strain on the Nutrition Services Department and on the district’s operating budget.

To be fair and equitable and in order to ensure compliance of all who participate in the school meal program, this policy establishes procedures for methods of payment, methods of contact, and collection methods for unpaid lunch balances.

The Nutrition Service Department establishes the following goals:
     * To establish a consistent district policy;
     * To treat all students with dignity at all times;
     * To ensure all families have the opportunity to fill out the National School Lunch Program free and reduced lunch application;
     * To require parents/guardians to assume the responsibility of payments while supporting positive interactions with students ;
     * To ensure all students have access to the healthy meals they need on a daily basis.

Methods of Payment:
We require parents/guardians to prepay student accounts. Payment may be made in the form of:
     * CASH 
     * CHECK 
     * ONLINE AT: myschoolbucks.com. Online payments take a few days to post to the account. There is a fee from which the Nutrition Services Department does not profit. 

Accounts that have received an NSF (non-sufficient funds) check, will be changed to a cash-only account.  The business office will attempt to redeposit the check one time and will notify the responsible parent/guardian of the NSF check.  All positive balances will carry over to the next school year.  Full payment is required for all negative account balances at the end of the school year. 

How to apply for free and reduced meals:
Families eligible for free or reduced-price meals must submit a free and reduced meal application. Applications are accepted throughout the year and are located at each school office, the Central office, and online at ccsd1.org. The Central bookkeeping department will be available to assist in completing and submitting the free and reduced application.

 An application must be submitted after July 1 of each year.

Low balance notification policy:
When a student account reaches $5.00 or under, parents/guardians will receive a phone message, text message, and email through School Messenger, each week until the account is brought above $5.00.  If School Messenger notifications are blocked, you won’t receive ANY messages from the school district.

Negative balance notification policy:
When a student account reaches a negative balance, the nutrition services cashier will notify the student's classroom or homeroom teacher the next morning. The student will call a parent/guardian. Students with a negative lunch balance may not purchase additional food items. If the negative balance reaches $10.00, a letter will be sent from the school to the parent/guardian and an application for free and reduced lunch will be included. If the negative balance reaches $15.00, the school principal and nutrition services director will meet with the parent/guardian to get the situation resolved. If the negative balance reaches $25.00 no further meals will be served to the student.

Any monthly existing negative balance by staff members, that amount will be deducted from the staff's paycheck every month.

Blocking charges:
Should a parent/guardian wish to prevent a student from purchasing items from our department, a signed letter is required.

Leaving the District:  
Payment of any lunch balance due is required when leaving the district.  Any funds not claimed within one (1) year will become the property of the Converse County School District.

Seniors: 
•    Upon checkout, the remaining funds can be transferred to any sibling account. If no siblings, parents/guardians’ address is needed. 
•    A check for the remaining balance will be mailed after board approval.
•    No cash over $10.00 will be returned at senior check out.
•    Per State Statute WS:24-4-308, credit shall not be deemed earned until the indebtedness due to unpaid lunch balances is paid.

 Our goal is to satisfy both the students and parents. Your communication is a valued tool in allowing us to complete our mission. If you have any questions or comments regarding the food or the service, please contact the main kitchen office at 358-4158.

Sincerely,

Monty Gilbreath

Nutrition Service Director
