All students may apply to receive free or reduced price meals at AACPS. Effective August 2016, paper applications for free or reduced-price meals will no longer be available for all students.
Previously, a paper application was sent home on the first day of school to all students and online applications were accepted. The online process has proven to be faster and more accurate, is available in English and Spanish, and can be completed on a computer or smart phone .
We will continue to provide paper applications for parents without access to smart phones/computers. Please note that the amount of paper applications is limited.
