• Georgetown ISD Transitions Back to Application Requirement for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals

    Back to School and Back to Normal in the Cafeteria

     

    Georegetown ISDDuring the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Georgetown ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-priced meals based on student eligibility. Starting on 01 July 2022, Georgetown ISD will begin distributing letters and applications to the households of the children in the district about eligibility benefits. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals available at www.georgetownisd.org and return the completed form online or to any school office. 

    The application will determine a child's eligibility for free and reduced-price meals and may assist in the determination of eligibility for other state or federal benefits. Only one application needs to be completed per household. Schools will notify the household of the child's eligibility.  The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers school nutrition programs in Texas and offers an eligibility calculator at www.SquareMeals.org/ProgramEligibility. 

    Decisions regarding payment for school meals are made at the national government level, not by the school nutrition team or TDA. The dedicated staff at Georgetown ISD is looking forward to serving healthy, balanced meals to students in the new school year. These meals, whether paid, free, or reduced-price, offer a good source of nutrition for children.
