RocketScan can do more than just meal applications. The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a non-pricing meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students. Instead, schools that adopt CEP are reimbursed using a formula based on the percentage of students categorically eligible for free meals based on their participation in other specific means-tested programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
RocketScan can help your district customize forms/surveys to collect this data and help your district increase it’s Identified Student Percentage (ISP). Schools with higher ISPs receive more reimbursements and more funding from federal programs.
With RocketScan you will be able to:
- Process Income Forms side-by-side with Free and Reduced Meal Applications seamlessly
