Pre-K through eighth grade students eat at no charge because Jeff Davis County participates in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Jeff Davis High participates in Special Provision II for breakfast so all students may receive a free school breakfast. Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families with high school students if they qualify based on income. If your family chooses to apply please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." Turn in the form to the cafeteria manager at the High School or to the Central Office for processing. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.
Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits. An application is not needed if there is documentation of foster status by a state or local entity familiar with the child's status. If not, an application will be needed. Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.
Jeff Davis High Student Meal Price 2020-21 is $1.45
