Educational Benefits Program
What can an approved Educational Benefits Application provide?
Educational Benefits Applications help reduce obstacles to educational programs that students and families may face.
Regardless of income, all families should complete an Educational Benefits Application to ensure a quality educational experience at their child's school. Students and families may be eligible for reduced prices on items listed below, lowering barriers to participation in educational opportunities and programs.
Each household only needs to submit one application. If you prefer a paper application, you can obtain one from the front office at your child's school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Nutrition@district196.org or call 651-683-6958.
