Community Eligibility Provision Virtual Briefing

On June 17,  at 11:00 a.m. ET, AASA, The School Superintendents Association; the Food Research & Action Center; the American Federation of Teachers; the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities; and the National Education Association are co-hosting a virtual briefing on Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). 
 
For context, CEP allows over 30,000 high-poverty schools to offer breakfast and lunch at no charge to all students. As states and school districts make plans to safely reopen schools in the fall, and millions of households are experiencing job and wage losses, more schools than ever are becoming eligible to implement CEP, as well as finding the program to be a more financially viable option than before the pandemic. 
 
Specifically, this briefing will feature a panel discussion on how CEP works, the upcoming deadlines to apply and adopt the program, and some resources to help spread the word and support school districts as they determine whether community eligibility is a financially viable option for the 2020–2021 school year.
