Hello Trailblazer Families,
Hello RCSD Families,
Free and Reduced Meal Applications are more important than you might think.
The Free and Reduced Meal program typically provides assistance to those who qualify, and even though meals are free for all students for this school year, we are asking you to please take a moment and fill out a Free and Reduced Meal application online at ezmealapp.com. The application is due by December 15, 2020.
The number of students that qualify for the Free and Reduced Meal program impacts many services and programs that RCSD offers families.
Our students and schools are at risk of losing 23% of the supplemental grant funding that supports those programs due to the lack of applications submitted to date.
The supplemental grant supports:
- Mental & Health Services - help fund school counselors and health aides.
- Class size reduction - help fund smaller class sizes in Transitional Kindergarten and 4-5 grades.
- Foster youth and homeless services - help fund resources for both foster youth students and students experiencing homelessness.
- Music & Elementary PE - funds a portion of the teachers’ salaries for these programs.
- AVID and IB programs - help to fund school sites that have AVID and IB programs.
- Technology - help to ensure students and staff have internet connectivity.
- Intervention Services - help fund staffing for intervention teachers and other intervention support providers.
- World Language Program - help fund world language teachers at all four of our middle schools.
