Woodland School District:
Student Lunch Prices:
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires all local education agencies (LEA) to calculate their weighted average paid lunch price using the Paid Lunch Equity (PLE) Tool. If the weighted average paid lunch price for 2016-17 is at least $2.75, then no further action is required. All LEAs must keep a copy of their PLE calculations (either electronic or paper) on file. Ensuring that all LEAs have made this calculation will be part of administrative reviews conducted by OSPI.
If the weighted average paid lunch price is less than $2.75, then there are three options to meet the PLE requirement:
