Broadcaster Press 3 August 14, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Education Department Announces 2018 4-H Shooting Guidelines For 2018-19 Free Or Sports National Reduced School Meal Programs Championship PIERRE, S.D. - Child and Adult Nutrition Services in the South Dakota Department of Education announces the policy for free milk or free and reduced price meals. The policy applies to children unable to pay the full price of meals or milk served under the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and/or Special Milk Programs. The administrative office of each school that participates in the Lunch, Breakfast, and/or Milk Program has a copy of the policy available for review. Children from families whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for free or reduced price meals. Children from a household whose income is at or below the level shown for free meals may be eligible for free milk if the school participates in a federally funded pricing Special Milk Program. Families may apply for free or reduced price meals or free milk for their children for school year 2018-19 according to guidelines effective July 1, 2018. Applications will be provided to households by the school. Families that are directly certified as eligible for free meals will receive a notice of eligibility. The school will use the prior year’s eligibility status (free, reduced price or paid) from last year for up to the first 30 days of school or until a new application is approved or direct certification is obtained, whichever comes first. When the carry-over period ends, unless the household is notified that their children are directly certified or the household submits an application that is approved, the children must pay full price for school meals and the school will not send a reminder or a notice of expired eligibility. Households that are currently on Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) will receive letters from the school indicating that their children are eligible for free school meals. These families should not complete an application for free meals. All children in a household where any household member receives benefits under TANF or SNAP are eligible for free meals. If any children were not listed on the notice of eligibility, the household should contact the local educational agency or school to have free meal benefits extended to them. Families receiving commodities through the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) can request an Interagency Action Notice that can be brought to the school in place of an application to document free meal eligibility, or they can complete an application and list the FDPIR case number. All children in a household with any household member receiving benefits under FDPIR are eligible for free meals. If the school knows of children who are homeless, runaway, foster, from a migrant household, or who are enrolled in Head Start, they will send a letter to the household telling them the children are eligible for free meals. Contact the school if the household does not get a letter because these children may be eligible for free meal benefits. The household must notify the school if it chooses to decline benefits. Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals. Any foster child in the household is eligible for free meals regardless of income. Households may include foster children on the application, but are not required to include payments received for care of the foster child as income. To apply for free or reduced price meals, other households should fill out the application and return it to the school. An application must include the names of children for whom benefits are requested, all household members and their monthly income or designation that they do not have any income, and be signed by an adult household member with the last four digits of that person’s social security number. Incomplete applications cannot be approved for free and reduced price meals. Additional copies are available in the school office. The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility status for school meals and Title I programs. The school will provide additional information if it wants to use eligibility status for other purposes. An eligibility determination is good for the whole school year; however, applications may be submitted at any time during the year. Contact the school if a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes. The children from that household may be eligible for free or reduced price meals or free milk during the time of unemployment if the household’s income falls within the income eligibility guidelines. Information on any application may be verified at any time during the school year by school or other program officials. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the ruling on the application for eligibility, she/he may contact the determining official on an informal basis. If the parent or guardian wishes to make a formal appeal, an oral or written request may be made to the school’s hearing official for a hearing to appeal the decision. Some schools may choose to send a special notice about the Children's Health Insurance Program to households with the application. It provides a way for school personnel to know if families will allow them to use students' eligibility status for other program benefits. The decision whether or not a household is eligible for meal benefits or not is not affected by this form.

Daugaard Calls Special Session For Sept. 12 To Address Implementation Of Sales Tax On Remote Sellers PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard has called a special legislative session to consider legislation that would expedite implementation of the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. and allow the state to enforce the obligation of remote sellers to collect and remit sales tax. After consulting with legislative leaders from both political parties, the Governor is calling the special session for Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, at the State Capitol in Pierre. “South Dakota led the fight for tax fairness, which culminated with our historic win before the U.S. Supreme Court in June,” said Gov. Daugaard. “Thanks to that victory, other states are implementing tax changes as soon as Oct. 1, and I will be proposing legislation to allow South Dakota to join them.” Draft legislation is currently being prepared by the South Dakota Department of Revenue, in consultation with the Attorney General’s office, and will be made available for review prior to the special session.
