Complete the Meal Benefit Application Form

MEDIA RELEASE: Call to Action for Maine Parents: Complete the Meal Benefit Application at School This Year – Even if School Meals are Free



Maine needs all parents and caregivers to take action this school year––by taking the time to complete the confidential Meal Benefit Application through your local school, even if school meals are already free for all students. Families, schools, communities, and our state can greatly benefit from the data that is gathered from the application, and this application is important for a number of reasons.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, when school meals became complementary, there has been a significant drop in Meal Benefit Application returns––meaning less families are filling out the application.

The family income data provided by the application informs key funding for school resources. This includes school meal reimbursements, funding for Title I programs, funding and resources for after school programs, funding provided to schools from the Maine State Legislature for essential programs and services at school, funding for special education, teacher loan forgiveness, and much, much more!

Federal and state government use the aggregate data from the application to distribute education funding to schools across the county and state of Maine. In other words, if there is no data to inform the needs of the community, it could result in less education funding for your local district and for Maine.

By completing the Meal Benefit Application, you are directly investing in your child’s education and the children and families in your community.

Specific programs that are funded by the data collected from Meal Benefit Application:

How can I complete the Meal Benefit Application?  The application is available through your local school administrative unit (SAU) school nutrition program and it is completely confidential. Most SAUs have the application available to be completed online. Follow this link to access your SAU’s online application (if your school district is not listed, please contact them directly). A printed version of the application is also required to be available––it will often be part of beginning of year paperwork that comes home with your child.

This past school year has certainly had its challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are thrilled that, despite these challenges, all Maine children have had the opportunity to access free healthy school meals on a daily basis. We would like to extend our gratitude to Maine parents and caregivers who have participated in their SAUs’ meal programs. We know that with the continued support of Maine’s incredible families, we can ensure the best for our children.

AOS 93 School Choice Information

posted Jan 21, 2021, 7:37 AM by Linda Skiff   [ updated Jan 21, 2021, 7:59 AM ]

AOS 93 is a K-12 school district where students have school choice for grades 9-12. The district has seven towns with a total school enrollment of over 1500 students. Each town pays the approved state tuition rate to each school for their students. The majority of our students attend school locally and a small percentage attend schools with boarding options. In order to receive these public funds schools must meet criteria for instruction and complete an approval process with the State of Maine. We would like to make it more accessible for parents and students to understand the variety of school options that school choice presents. In an effort to highlight these opportunities in the past we have organized a meet and greet with schools. Given the limits of the pandemic, we have assembled school contacts and useful information in this document. Please contact each school for more information about their programs. If you have any questions regarding school choice and how it works please feel free to contact the AOS 93 Superintendent’s Office.
