DISTRICT-WIDE FREE MEALS FOR STUDENTS
The Jefferson Independent School District is proud to announce a district-wide policy of continuing to serve meals to children under the National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program for the 2023-2024 school year. Jefferson I.S.D. is now eligible to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), which provides free breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminates the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. The approach reduces burdens for families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive meals.
