The remaining Clovis Unified School District schools participate in the NSLP and SBP Federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program.

The following Clovis Unified School District schools are participating in CEP: Boris, Clark, CCDS Elementary, CCDS Secondary, Clovis East, Clovis Elementary, Cole, Fancher Creek, Gateway, Gettysburg, Jefferson, Kastner, Lincoln, Mickey Cox, Miramonte, Mountain View, Nelson, Pinedale, Reyburn, Sierra Vista, Tarpey, Temperance-Kutner, Weldon.
Q: What is the difference between household meal applications and the educational benefit survey?
A: The purpose of the household meal application is to certify a student’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals or free milk benefits. Federal regulations require schools to operate standard meal counting and collection procedures in the School Nutrition Programs to collect household meal applications.
The purpose of the educational benefit survey is to identify that a student’s household meets the income eligibility criteria so that they may be included in the district’s unduplicated pupil count used to determine supplemental and concentration grants under Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Educational benefit surveys were developed to be used for LCFF purposes in instances when schools do not need to collect meal applications (e.g., schools operating Community Eligibility Provision).
Q: Are there other benefits for my family if I complete these forms and qualify?
A: Yes! The completion of household meal applications or educational benefit surveys may bring significant additional funds to the school site, as well as qualify students for individual benefits such as college application waivers, Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) testing fee waivers, Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) benefits, and discounted high-speed internet as part of the Affordable Connectivity Program.
Q: I have special dietary needs. Can my school accommodate them?
YES. Campus Catering will prepare special meals for students who provide written medical documentation. Find more information by visiting our Special Diets
