Webinar Materials – CEP & LCFF


Computer Communication

On May 22nd, CFPA co-hosted a webinar about Community Eligibility Provision and education funding. The webinar recording and other useful materials are now available!

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) allows high-poverty schools to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students and eliminates the need to collect school meal applications. While this reduction in paperwork and administration is a clear benefit to school districts, many districts worry that not collecting a school meal application could impact their precious education funding. California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) relies on an annual count of low-income students, often identified through school meal applications. But there is another way! This webinar was designed to help grow understanding of the state policies that align CEP and LCFF and create an opportunity to learn from school business officials and nutrition directors who are successfully collecting alternative income forms.
