||2006 Free and Reduced Price School Data
Action Required: March 1, 2006
Enclosed are the 2006 Free and Reduced Price School Data for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program and the Guidance Memorandum on the use of the data. The data is divided into two sections:
- Tier 1: Oregon Schools (K-8) equal to or greater than 50% free/reduced price
- Oregon Schools (K-8) with 40-49% free/reduced price
Effective March 1, 2006, Sponsors of Family Day Care Homes must begin using this data to qualify providers for tier 1. Sponsors are required to use the ODE CNP data and may not use free and reduced price data obtained directly from schools or other resources. To document tier 1 area eligibility, Sponsors must obtain written verification from the school that the provider's address is located within the school boundary, or obtain detailed maps directly from school district or school district websites.
We appreciate your partnership in ensuring all Oregon children are well nourished, ready to learn and able to make life-long healthy food choices.
