Application for Educational Benefits
Families are encouraged to complete an Application for Educational Benefits. Qualifying families may be entitled to additional benefits such as reduced fees for various programs and the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT). The application also helps determine state education funding for your children's schools. Applications can be submitted anytime throughout the school year.
PANDEMIC ELECTRONIC BENEFIT TRANSFER
P-EBT benefits provide students eligible for free and reduced-price school meals with funds they can use to purchase groceries. P-EBT benefits replace the school meals children missed because their school was in a distance- or hybrid-learning model.
Please note, just because your student is receiving free meals through their school right now does not mean they have been approved for free or reduced-priced meals.
If you want your student to be considered for P-EBT benefits, apply for Educational Benefits (free/reduced-price meals). If you've already applied, no additional action is required. Please make sure your current address and contact information is correct in Infinite Campus.
