Family Income Survey

Our school is participating in a federal program available to select schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This means that all students attending College Place Public Schools are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge throughout the 2023-24 school year, regardless of family or household income. However, some of the very important education programs our school and district provide are funded from state dollars that require our school to collect household information for all students attending our schools.  Without this information, programs such as Title I, LAP, and 21st Century programming to name a few, will lose funding to support our kids.

In order to collect the information, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has developed the Family Income Survey. The Family Income Survey is used to capture information and ensure the district/schools receive all of the funding it is entitled to for other state funded education programs following the school years 2022-23, 2023-24, 2024-25, 2025-26.

Please take a moment to complete this form Family Income Survey - English , Encuesta de Ingresos Familiares and return it to your student’s school. Your participation is essential in order for us to provide OSPI with the information they need and ensure College Place Public Schools will continue to receive critical state funding for these educational programs.  Our children are depending on them!
