Direct Certification is the matching of our student data with the Food Stamp office data and automatically qualifying those students for free school meals.  Once Direct Certification is done, a letter will be sent home, explaining the meal benefits.  If you receive such a letter, your student qualifies for the entire school year and no meal application is needed!

All students who do not qualify for Direct Certification, should fill out a meal application either online or by using a printed form that can be turned in to any school or to the Administration Offices.
