Beginning the 2019-2020 school year all students in grades preschool through 5th will receive free breakfast and lunch as part of the Community Eligibility Provision Program or CEP. Dayton qualified for this program by identifying that 40 percent of the student population (in the elementary building) qualified for free meals without the use of household applications (for example those directly certified through SNAP).

The program was authorized by Congress as a part of the Healthy, Hunger‐Free Kids Act of 2010. It was phased in over a period of 3 years, starting with D.C., Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, and Massachusetts. The program became available nationwide beginning July 1, 2014.

As part of the program Free & Reduced applications are no longer required to be filled out. However, some of the education programs the district provides are funded from state dollars that require our school to collect household information for all students attending CEP schools.

In order to collect the information, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has developed the Family Income Survey. The Family Income Survey is used to capture information and ensure the district/school receives all of the funding it is entitled to for other state funded education programs.

If you have questions or would like more information please contact Food Services Director, Jana Eaton, at 509-382-2543.
