4 Welcome Back!!! I want to take an opportunity to welcome everyone back. Hopefully you had a chance to recharge your batteries and rest up from a challenging year. Last year was tough with the new meal pattern, additional 6 cents certification process and validation visits. We are happy to report that over 90% of all Idaho school districts were certified to receive the additional 6 cents reimbursements. Everyone deserves congratulations because that is a huge accomplishment and we know that you have been working hard to change menus and portion sizes to be in compliance. This year everyone is required to implement the new Breakfast Meal Pattern and those schools that weren’t 6 cents certified have been contacted by our office. It is our goal to have the 16 remaining SFA’s certified by September 30 before we start the new review process this Fall.

5 New State Agency Personnel
Dianne Esplin, RD, LD – Team Nutrition Grant Coordinator Heather Blume, RD, LD – NSLP Coordinator Liz Beechler, RD, LD – NSLP Coordinator We have had some personnel changes in our office and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new state agency personnel. Many of you have already talked to met some of the new employees at ISNA, trainings or have had one on one technical assistance visits. Dianne Esplin is a registered and licensed dietitian. She graduated from BYU and has Child Nutrition experience from the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands at the state agency and local level. Heather Blume is a registered, licensed dietitian and she graduated from the University of Idaho. She received her M.S. in Family and Consumer Sciences.

Some school districts in Southwest Idaho may be familiar with Liz since she used to be a cadre.

6 USDA School Policy Memos
SP School Nutrition Programs Updated Administrative Review Process We will be implementing the new Administrative Review during the 2013/2014 SY. USDA will be issuing proposed review regulations this school year and final regulations later after state agency feedback. These will not be in numerical order because not all school policy memos apply to sponsors.

12 SP 50-2013 Release of new SA Direct Certification Rate Data Elements
Beginning in 2013/2014 each State’s direct certification performance rate is 95% Last year our benchmark was 90% - reached that goal Need all SFA’s to make sure DC figures are reported correctly and accurately Lynda brought up an example where an SFA reported 157 DC students when in reality, the actual number was over These reporting errors will cause our state to miss our 95% goal. Please call if you have any questions with new reporting requirements.
