Banks reported that federal reimbursement for meals is based on the Identified Student Percentage established by the district. The information used to establish the ISP is only available for review by state and federal officials.

All visitors, teachers, support staff and administrators must pay the full cost of the meal, which is $2 for breakfast and $3 for lunch said Banks.
