On-site Monitoring


bulleted list

On-site monitoring is a self-assessment of the counting and claiming system and general areas to ensure program integrity and accountability.

On-site monitoring is required for all School Food Authorities (SFAs) with more than one school site operating the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). It is also required for all SFAs operating the Afterschool Snack Program (ASP), regardless of only operating at one site.

On-site monitoring forms are site and program specific. Therefore, SFAs will need to complete a form for each meal service location per program per school year. If a school building has two meal service locations, a minimum of one of those locations must be monitored. 
On-site monitoring forms are not submitted to DPI, but instead maintained at the SFA.

On-Site Monitoring Forms

Seamless Summer Option (SSO)

SFAs are required to complete onsite monitoring, just like NSLP, and review each SSO site at least once during its operation. The SFA must review the site's compliance with meal counting, claiming, menu planning, and food safety requirements.

National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

This form must be completed annually (by February 1) for all sites operating NSLP.

School Breakfast Program (SBP)

This form must be completed annually (by February 1) for 50% of sites operating SBP. Each school operating the SBP must be reviewed once every two years.

Afterschool Snack Program (ASP)

Unlike the NSLP and SBP, the ASP requires two assessments annually. For more information on the ASP on-site monitoring requirements, visit the ASP webpage.
