Income Eligibility Forms
 
Dear Parent/Guardian:
The deadline is fast approaching, but it is not too late. Please submit your annual School Benefit Forms also known as the Income Eligibility Form as soon as possible but no later than October 23, 2020. These applications are crucial and directly impact funding for our students.
Completing a School Benefit Form helps our district provide many resources to students including:
  • Funding that supports classroom resources
  • Before and after school enrichment and recreations programs
  • Fee waiver for college applications and admissions exams (PSAT, SAT and Advanced Placement)
  • Health and wellness services, and so much more!
 
Not submitting this application can contribute to a direct and significant loss of funding for our students. Every eligible form that is not submitted means lost resources for our schools and lost opportunities for our students.

Please complete the School Benefit Form and return it to your child’s school or in the mail as soon as possible and no later than October 23, 2020. All information provided is completely confidential and will not be used for any other purpose.

Completing the single page form takes less than 10 minutes, and parents only need to complete one School Education Benefit Form per family. If you have a child/children in different schools, you still only need to return one form. When completing the application, please:
  • Use black or blue ink only
  • Complete ALL sections of the application
  • Remember to sign the application
  • Submit the completed application as soon as possible
 
For more information, contact your child’s school or call the Food Services department at (562) 801-7440 or CLICK HERE. Thank you for providing this information and for helping to ensure that our schools continue to receive the critical funding needed to serve our students.

La fecha límite se acerca rápidamente, pero no es demasiado tarde. Envíe sus Formularios Beneficios Escolares, también conocido como Formulario de Elegibilidad de Ingresos lo antes posible, pero a más tardar el 23 de octubre del 2020. Estas solicitudes son cruciales y tienen un impacto directo en la financiación de nuestros estudiantes. Completar un formulario de beneficios escolares ayuda a nuestro distrito a proporcionar muchos recursos a los estudiantes, que incluyen:
  • Financiamiento que apoya los recursos de clases
  • Programas recreativos y de enriquecimiento académico antes y después de la escuela
  • Exenciones de tarifas para solicitudes universitarias y exámenes de admisión (PSAT, SAT y colocación avanzada)
  • Servicios de salud y bienestar, ¡y mucho más!
 
El no enviar esta solicitud puede contribuir a una pérdida directa y significativa de fondos para nuestros estudiantes. Cada formulario elegible que no se envía significa la pérdida de recursos para nuestras escuelas y la pérdida de oportunidades para nuestros estudiantes.

Complete el Formulario de Beneficios Escolares y devuélvalo a la escuela de su hijo o envíelo por correo tan pronto como sea posible y a más tardar el 23 de octubre del 2020. Toda la información proporcionada es completamente confidencial y no se utilizará para ningún otro propósito.
