Throughout the school year, students face many expenses such as lunch fees, AP test costs, and many more. The cost of these necessary items add up, but for qualifying students there is an easy way to avoid most of these fees. It is required by the school district for every student, one per siblings attending the same school, to fill out a lunch application every new school year. The most important reason for these applications is for the state to determine the income of every family. Once the application is submitted, students who qualify for free-reduced lunch also receive assistance in other matters. These accommodations also include: reduced AP test costs and fee waivers for the SAT, ACT, and subject tests. To see if you can receive these benefits, be sure to fill out the LAUSD lunch application and visit the college office (Room 300) today!
