Financial Assistance Procedures

On October 26, 2021 the School Committee adopted a Student Financial Assistance Policy, which authorized a central application process to provide families with financial assistance for certain school related fees. The program goals are as follows:

- Implement an objective financial assistance program for all students and families;
- Allow families a single point of contact and determination within the school district;
- Adhere to a standard of confidentiality throughout the district;
- Remove the Principal’s Office and Guidance staff from making determinations of financial need using Free and Reduced Lunch applications, which violates the USDA School Lunch program.
