730 FOOD SERVICE DEBT COLLECTION/MANAGEMENT
The purpose of this policy is to establish consistent guidelines for meal account procedures and debt collection.
GENERAL STATEMENT OF POLICY
Tri-City United ISD 2905 recognizes proper nutrition is essential for adequate learning. Students may purchase meals once funds have been deposited into their family account or by cash payment. If a family account falls negative, the student(s) will be allowed to purchase lunch for 5 days. If payment is not received or arrangements made within 5 days of the account becoming negative, the procedures within this policy will be followed.
The parent/guardian will be notified per regular district method when the family account is equal to or less than $10.00.
ACCOUNT NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES
Negative accounts are monitored by the lunch program administrator, located in the District Office. The lunch program administrator will use the district method to inform parents/guardians of account status. If a negative balance persists, the building administrator or designee may contact the household for arrangements. If the parent/guardian refuses to make payment arrangements with the district, a certified letter will be sent to the household that the account will be turned over to a collection agency if the account is not settled.
- When the account balance is negative, a milk and grain component will be offered at breakfast. A sandwich and milk will be offered at lunch when the account balance is negative.
- Families may apply for free/reduced meals at any time during the school year. Applications for this program are mailed to all families in the district prior to the start of the school year. Applications are available upon request or can be found in any building office.
