An assessment will be made to determine if the SFA choosing to participate in this program are meeting the federal and state requirements as specified under Section 115.345 of Wisconsin Statutes.
The operation of this state funded program will be reviewed to determine if the SFA is in compliance with rules under Section 1741s of the 1987 Wisconsin Act 27 and amended by 1991 Wisconsin Act 39 and 2001 Act 16. To meet requirements, milk must be served at no cost to children in grades pre-kindergarten through five at a milk break who meet the NSLP income guidelines for free and for reduced price meals. Annual claims may only be submitted for the milk served to these eligible students.
If a CEP school is under review, the SA must:
- Review the certification documentation used to determine the Identified Student Percentage (ISP) and claiming percentages that were submitted for the latest ISP approval to operate CEP. This can include direct certification lists, documentation for extension of eligibility, and lists from homeless/migrant liaisons.
- Meal counting and claiming system will be reviewed to verify correct claiming percentages were properly applied to claims for reimbursement.
- Records used in the development of the ISP are maintained during the entire time the school is in CEP. In addition, this documentation must be retained for 3 years after submission of the final Claim for Reimbursement for the last fiscal year of CEP.
