Programs and Activities

Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) - Whitley County Schools participate in federal child nutrition programs.  The Community Eligibility Provision allows each student to receive a free breakfast and free lunch each school day.

National School Breakfast Program (SBP) - Studies show that children who participate in the School Breakfast Program have significantly higher standardized achievement test scores than non-participants.  Children with access to school breakfast also had significantly reduced absence and tardiness rates.

National School Lunch Program (NSLP)  - Provides nutritionally balanced meals to children each school day.  Federal guidelines promote meal quality and variety by requiring minimum portions sizes of protein, fruit, vegetable, grains and milk. 

Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program (FFVP) - Is a grant offered by the Federal Government that provides fresh fruits and vegetables free to students in participating elementary schools during the school day other than meal times.  Currently the following schools were chosen to participate:

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) - A federal program that allows the district to provide snacks that are served to the preschool students in the afternoon each school day.  The CACFP is also used to provide after school meals for children at schools that have an enrichment program offered after school.  Currently, all schools are offering an after school meal Monday through Thursday.

Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) - Is the single largest federal resource available for local sponsors who want to combine a feeding program with a summer activity program.  This program is used to feed children who attend programs at schools and also children who are attending other programs like Church Activities, Library Programs, Camps, etc.
