District Policy on Food Service Operations
It is the policy of the Champlain Valley School District to recognize any financial operational deficits in food service operations in the year which they occur. The Fiscal Services staff is instructed to make appropriate transfers from the general fund at the close of the fiscal year to cover deficits within the authority of the school board, and not roll said deficits forward to subsequent years.
Compliance with these policy provisions shall be reviewed as a part of the annual financial audit process. It is the policy of the Champlain Valley School District that:
- No student will be denied a reimbursable meal due to their account balance being in the negative.
- No student will be served an alternate meal due to their account balance being in the negative.
- No student will be allowed to charge “a la Carte” items on their account when in the negative (K-8 only).
Compliance with these policy provisions shall be reviewed annually by the CVSD Chief Operations Officer. At that same time negative balances will be reviewed and those deemed uncollectible will be written off using funds provided by the School District as support to food service operations.
