Correction to count dates for Virtual 19 and Under as shown in the Enrollment Handbook FY23 and Counting Kids presentation slides: The count dates for Virtual 19 and under students, as initially shown on pages 17-19 in the Enrollment Handbook, were in error and have since been corrected. Virtual students must attend at least two days to be included in the district’s virtual enrollment count, including: a single day on or before September 19 AND a single day on or after September 20, but before October 4. We apologize for the error. If you are concerned about how this affects attendance for your district’s students 19 and under attending virtually, please call Fiscal Auditing at 785-296-4976. Thank you.

Enrollment Handbook FY23 is available as a resource. New and updated information is highlighted in yellow. The document can be accessed under the Audit Guides section of this webpage.

Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications 2022-23: Schools are required to make available and collect free and reduced price meal application from households for 2022-23. Congress did not extend school meal waivers and school meals will no longer be available to all students free of charge. To ensure that eligible students receive free or reduced price meals and that your school receives the appropriate amount of State At-Risk student weighting for 2022-23, your school must make the free and reduce price meal application available. The KSDE Household Economic Surveys from 2021-22 and 2022-23 cannot be used to qualify students for free and reduce price meals for 2022-23.
