SUBJECT:

Federal Program Monitoring Review of the School Nutrition Programs

 

The Code of Federal Regulations 7, Section 210.18, requires the Department of Education to conduct an administrative review of the federally funded breakfast, lunch, afterschool snack and special milk programs in each school division once every five years. This review is a comprehensive on-site evaluation designed to assess compliance with regulations, standards, and state and federal laws. For your information, the schedule for the next five years is attached (Attachment 1).

 

A review schedule for the school year 2003-2004 is also attached (Attachment 2). School divisions scheduled for a review next year are asked to compare the scheduled dates to the divisions calendar. Please advise the School Nutrition Programs Office by July 15, 2003, of any conflicts due to holidays, scheduled breaks, or any dates during the scheduled review week when meals would not be offered to students.

 

Personnel from School Nutrition Programs in the Virginia Department of Education will conduct orientation sessions for divisions scheduled for a review next school year. Each division is required to send a representative to one of the sessions; the representative should have division-wide responsibility for the school nutrition programs. One day sessions will be conducted on September 18, 2003, in Richmond and also on September 19, 2003, in Radford. Additional information and registration details will be sent in mid-August.

 

If you have questions regarding the federal review or conflicts with the scheduled review dates, please contact Lynne Fellin, at (804) 225-2074.
