Prior Year Payor Applications This report can be used to determine which Payors returned an application last year, but have not yet returned one this year. All processes should be run from entity 000. At the beginning of each school year, families must re-apply for free and reduced meals. They have 30 serving days to make this application. During the 30- day window, the prior year’s lunch code will be in effect. After 30 serving days, any student who does not have a new application entered into the system must be changed back to paid status. A district may choose to send letters home to those families who qualified for free or reduced priced meals in the prior year, but have not turned in a new application for the current school year. This program looks at the Payor Status to determine whether to select a record. Consequently, if a customer is inactive (student has been withdrawn), but the payor status is still active, they will be printed on the report.

Verification of Income Eligibility The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how to use Skyward to create the Verification Sampling and the Verification Summary Report. This demonstration is not intended to provide you with the OSPI’s specific requirements and process instructions. Detailed information was provided at the Child Nutrition Summer Workshop. OSPI did not put out a bulletin this year. Instead information was sent via e-mail on 9/21/2010. OSPI Bulletin 058-09 – November 2, 2009 for the 2009-2010 school year is still accurate for this year’s verification process. Reminder: If you use Skyward and are choosing not to do the confirmation review, your must request approval from OSPI/Child Nutrition before going through the verification process.

Verification of Income Eligibility The Skyward Verification of Income Eligibility Process meets the reporting requirements for the School Food Authority Verification Summary Report. Run this process from Entity 000. There are 4 separate options under Verification of Income Eligibility: 1. Create Verification Sampling 2. Verification Sampling Responses 3. View/Edit Verification Sampling 4. Verification Summary Report
Verification of Income Eligibility Create Verification Sampling This option is used to select the applications and create the Initial Verification letter(s) to send to Payors. Only approved applications with an effective date less than or equal to the date entered in the ‘Count Date’ and greater than or equal to the current Food Service Start Date (typically August 1st) will be selected for verification. Note: If the district has been modifying lunch codes by editing the Customer record and not adding a new application, this will affect the Verification process as selections are made based on Payor applications. It’s recommended that the district run the Payor/Customer Lunch Codes Report (found in the Food Service Reporting menu) with the option ‘Print differences in lunch code only’ selected. Any differences between Payor/Customer lunch codes should be reviewed and corrected.
Verification of Income Eligibility Create Verification Sampling Error Prone Sampling logic: For those applications that have a monthly income of within $100.00 of the upper limits for free or reduced eligibility: From the error prone applications, the software will select the smaller of 3% or 3000 of all approved applications. If the number of error prone is less than 3% or 3000 of all applications, the remaining applications will be selected randomly from the other applications (non-error prone).
