Free & Reduced Price Meals 15-16 Families- We wanted to remind you of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program that is available within Dublin City Schools. Not only does this program provide free and reduced priced meals for students unable to pay the full price, but may also qualify students for fee waivers for the ACT, SAT, Advanced Placement Tests, International Baccalaureate tests, as well as college application fees. If your total household gross income is the same or less than the amounts on the Income Chart below, and you submit a complete application, your student(s) may be approved to receive free or reduced price meals.

For each student you are applying for, you will need to enter their name and select their school and grade. Students’ Social Security Numbers and Student ID numbers are optional, but will help us to process your application. Please enter this if you can. If you receive SNAP or TANF, you will need to enter a case number for each student. If you do not receive SNAP or TANF, you will need to list all the people who live in your household and everyone’s monthly gross income. You will need to enter the last four digits of the Social Security number for the adult who submits the application (or indicate that they don’t have one). If you are applying for a foster child, you will need to list the child’s personal income or indicate that the child has no income. Can I apply if I don’t want to use the web site? Yes. Please contact your school district if you prefer to fill out a paper application. How long does it take to find out if my child is approved? You will get a letter from the school district within about 2 weeks. What does “Gross Income” mean? Gross income is the amount earned before taxes and other deductions. The amount should be listed on your pay stub, or your boss can tell you. Who should I include as a member of my household? You must include all people living in your household, related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives, or friends) who share income and expenses. You must include yourself and all children living with you. If you live with other people who are economically independent (for example, people who you do not support, who do not share income with you or your children, and who pay a pro-rated share of expenses), do not include them.
