Alternate Household Income Forms & Waivers

We are pleased to inform you that Racine Unified School District will be implementing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) while participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for School Year 2020-2021.

What does this mean for you and your children attending any of the following schools: 

All students who are enrolled at one of the following locations:  Bull Early Education Center, Case, Dr. Jones, Fratt, Giese, Gifford K-8, Gilmore Fine Arts, Horlick, Janes, Jefferson Lighthouse, Jerstad-Agerholm K-8, S.C. Johnson, Julian Thomas, Knapp, Mitchell K-8, RUSD Montessori, North Park, Olympia Brown, Park, Racine Alternate Learning (RAL), The R.E.A.L. School, Red Apple, Roosevelt, Schulte, Starbuck, Wadewitz, Walden III, and West Ridge, are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2020-2021 school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

The district will still be requesting an Alternate Household Income Form from our families; however, receipt of breakfast and lunch meals at no charge does not depend on the return of this form.  Completing the form is necessary to determine eligibility to receive assistance with student fees and other programs.  For a complete list of student fees visit  www.rusd.org/district/fee-schedule. A Sharing Information with Other Programs form will also need to be completed to waive applicable fees.     

You may now complete the Alternate Household Income form and Sharing Information with Other Programs for 2020-21 online

El formulario 20-21 Alternate Household Income y el formulario Sharing Information with Other Programs ahora se pueden completar en línea aquí.

If you have been notified that your children automatically qualify for free or reduced meals via direct certification, please DO NOT submit an online Alternate Household Income form.
