The Strong Huttig School District has announced that the district will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) during the 2020-2021 school year providing meals, regardless of eligibility category, at no charge for all students at Gardner Strong Elementary and Strong High School, which participate in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program.
CEP is made possible through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Special Assistance Certification and Reimbursement Community Eligibility Provision. Federal reimbursement for meals is based on the Identified Student Percentage (ISP) established by the district. The information used to establish the ISP will be made available only to state and federal officials for review. All adults including visitors, teachers, support staff members and administrators of the district must assume the full cost of the meal which is $ 2.25 for breakfast and $ 4.00 for lunch.
In accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability and reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity.
