What is Verification?
Every year, CharterChoice Collaborative (SFA) is required to select a small percentage of free and reduced price school meal applications for a process called verification. The free and reduced price school meal applications selected for verification will require a response from the household to verify the information provided on the application.
By not responding to this request your student will be changed to a “not eligible” meal status. While your student(s) will continue to receive free school meals during the 2020-21 school year due to USDA school meal flexibilities, a change in status to “not eligible” for school meals will eliminate your ability to qualify for Pandemic-EBT benefits. For more information about Pandemic-EBT visit: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdhs/p-ebt. Additionally, your student will start school year 2021-2022 at a paid status and school fees may not be waived or reduced. CharterChoice Collaborative (SFA) will have the 2021-2022 school year free and reduced meal application available after July 1, 2021.
