Instructions for Shared Housing
If a parent(s) lives with the child in a doubled-up situation, the person who is the legal resident of that address (e.g., grandparent or friend) needs to complete a Notarized Statement of Residency. Please contact your student(s) school or the district administration office to assist with this process. You will need to bring photo identification and proof of residency (Mid-American, water or sewer bill, signed lease agreement, etc).
The request for busing will be available online. More information to come.
Free & Reduced Applications/Student Fee Waiver
The Free & Reduced Application is online and can be accessed through your Parent Portal account. In the left menu bar, select Applications/Forms and then Meals Benefits Application. When completing the application for free or reduced lunch, applicants will be able to select “permission to share” for the other discounted fees, such as student fees. Eligibility requirements are updated each year; please do not complete the form for the 2021-2022 school year until after July 1.
If you are not filing a Free & Reduced application but do wish to be considered eligible for other reduced fees, you must complete a separate Student Fee Waiver. The form is available at your school building or online on the district website. Select Services from the top menu bar; then Nutrition Services and Student Fee Waiver.
Fee payment and registration are two separate actions; you will need to complete both. 2021-2022 fee statements will be available after July 1.
