    Direct Certification

    What is Direct Certification?

     Under direct certification, school districts use information from State welfare or food stamp offices to certify children to receive free meals. To qualify, the children's families must receive food stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or assistance from the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.

    How do you know if your Student is Direct Certified?

     Direct Certification Letters are sent to the homes of pre-approved students.

    If one student is Direct Certified, in a household, are the remaining students also Direct Certified?

     No, not all students are directly certified. If you receive a direct certification letter for one student in the household, please fill out a free and reduced application for the remaining student(s). Remember to include the direct certified student in section #5 of the form entitled All Other household Members.
