7/21/16

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is announcing its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program.

 

Meal applications will be sent to all households with a letter informing parents or guardians of the availability of free and reduced-price meals. To apply, complete one application for all children in the household and submit to the school for processing. Additional copies are available at the school office or you may apply online at http://nmusd.heartlandapps.com.   Households may submit an application at any time during the school year. Information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school officials.

 

Children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals if their household income is less than or equal to the Income Eligibility Guidelines identified below, which will be used to determine eligibility for meal benefits. These guidelines are effective July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017.

 

NMUSD will notify the household of their children’s eligibility for free meals if any household member receives CalFresh, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs), or Food Distribution Program Indian Reservations (FDPIR) benefits. Households will also be notified of any child’s eligibility for free meals if the individual child is categorized as foster, homeless, migrant, runaway, enrolled in an eligible Head Start, or enrolled in an eligible pre-kindergarten class.

 

 

An Application is not required if a household receives the eligibility notice from school officials. Households should contact the school immediately regarding any child in the household not included on the eligibility notice. The household must notify school officials if they choose to decline meal benefits.

 

Households that did not receive the eligibility notice from school officials and would like to apply for meal benefits must submit a complete free and reduced-price application for Newport-Mesa Unified School District to determine a child’s eligibility.

 

Households receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR benefits must include the following on their meal application:

  1. Names of all enrolled children
  2. One case number from any household member
  3. Signature of an adult household member

 

Households with foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway children must include: 

  1. Names of all enrolled children
  2. Indication of individual child’s categorical eligibility status
  3. Signature of an adult household member

 

Households who may qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on income must include:

  1. Names of all household members (children and adults)
  2. Amount, frequency, and source of current income for each household member
  3. The last 4 digits of the Social Security number (SSN) of the adult household member who signs the application or check the box if the adult does not have a SSN
  4. Signature of an adult household member

 

Foster children are eligible for free meals and may be included as a household member of a foster family if the foster family chooses to also apply for the non-foster children. Including foster children as a household member may help the non-foster children in the household qualify for free or reduced-price meal benefits. If the foster family is not eligible for meal benefits, this does not prevent foster children from receiving free meal benefits.

 

Children in households participating in Women, Infants and Children (WIC) may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Contact school officials for further information or complete an application for processing.

 

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the family should contact the school. Such changes may make the household eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household income falls at or below the levels shown above.

 

For up to 30 operating days into the new school year, eligibility from the previous school year will continue within the same school/agency. When the carry-over period ends, unless the household is notified that their children are directly certified or the household submits an application that is approved, the children must pay full price for school meals and the school will not send a reminder or a notice of expired eligibility.

District of Distenction Photo.jpg

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) was named a District of Distinction for its Psychological Support Services programs. In addition to providing support for educationally related mental health services these programs also serve to support the social and emotional well-being of students by providing support to students struggling with homelessness, drugs, bullying and other related circumstances.

 

Districts of Distinction is a national recognition program created by District Administration Magazine to honor school districts that are leading the way in establishing initiatives that yield quantifiable benefits, and that could be replicated by other districts.

 

The focus of NMUSD’s Psychological Support Services is to provide multi-tiered systems of support and interventions in order to encourage positive mental health that in-turn leads to positive learning and behavior. A unique aspect of NMUSD’s program is that it falls under the auspices of the Student Services Department, which allows a natural connection between both general education and special education.

 

“The mental, emotional, psychological, and social well-being of our students’ is essential to learning,” said Sara Jocham, assistant superintendent of student services. “By providing dynamic psychological support services, we are fostering student’s abilities to pay attention, concentrate, focus and learn,” Jocham added.

 

Part of the success of the Psychological Support Services programs is due to the partnerships with parents, other school-based professionals, and more than 30 community partners who work collaboratively to provide a continuum of services that meet the needs of the whole child. During the 2015-16 school year, the District hosted 12 master’s level social work interns from the University of Southern California School of Social Work.

 

Additionally, the District is one of 11 school districts selected, nationwide, to participate in a Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN), focused on the  implementation of best practices, policies, and financial strategies that support access to and the expansion of high-quality and sustainable school-based mental health services.  As part of the CoIIN initiative, the District is developing a first-ever national performance framework for measuring and publicly reporting outcomes in the area of school-based mental health.
