How do parents, who are hosting several students from different families, provide documentation?
This is a great question! To provide some background, USDA made it clear that even during this pandemic, they wanted us to see children when meals were handed out. This is a basic requirement for all child nutrition programs since our goal is to feed children!
We recognize that it is not always possible for parents to load up their children due to space constraints in their vehicle or due to the meal pick-up/delivery conflicting with virtual learning. However, we are responsible for devising a plan that ensures that meals are reaching eligible children. Because of this requirement, we will implement a new process that requires documentation from the parent that shows how the parent is connected to the student receiving the meal. Please keep in mind this process will evolve as we learn what works and doesn't work with our two meal distribution models.
For children enrolled in a CCSD school, documentation may include the following:
--School Report Card that shows student's name and ID number.
--Student ID Card
--Infinite Campus Parent Portal - display student information from your smart phone or print out student information page that shows picture, student name, and student ID number.
--MyPaymentsPlus.com - Parents can create accounts (for free) that will display your student's name and student ID number or bar code identifier.
