Students Without Meal Money
All students must have an approved meal application, cash or money on account to make lunch purchases. Procedures are in place for Pre-K, elementary and middle school students who do not have money to receive a complete lunch. The price of the lunch will be charged to the student’saccount. The student will be asked to return any extra items on his/her tray to the cashier. Parents will be notified of balances due and are responsible for payment. If payment is not received within 10 days of the date of the notice, the matter will be referred to the school principal for further action. High school students are not allowed to go into the negative to purchase any food items. There is a “no charge” policy in high schools.
At the beginning of the school year or during the school year, if a student moves from a CEP school to a school that is not CEP the parent mustcomplete a meal application within 30 days to be considered for meal benefits. Students will need to have money for meals if an approved mealapplication is not on file.
Advanced Placement courses provide students the opportunity to experience college level work while in high school. Research has shown that students who participate in Advanced Placement courses outperform others in college, particularly in grades and graduation rates.
Students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses can earn college credit, advanced placement, or both dependent upon the AP exam results. The State Board of Education supplies funds to pay for Advanced Placement Exams and registration fees for the courses in which a student is enrolled. Late registrations and ancillary fees are not covered. Fee waivers must be submitted to the AP Coordinator or Instructional Accountability Facilitator at the school. CMS believes that all children deserve access to the rigor of advanced coursework and can be successful with the appropriate support. Students and parents should work with their school counselor to determine the Advanced Placement opportunities available to them.
