Don’t forget! All schools/districts must have a formal policy for addressing unpaid school meal accounts in place by July 1, 2017. Much has been written in the media on the topic and the various approaches schools are taking to minimize losses. NutriStudents K-12 is not involved with our clients’ payment and collections systems. If you need assistance with your policy, we suggest you contact your state’s Department of Education or your local School Nutrition Association chapter.
