Free or Reduced Lunch

  • The Free or Reduced Lunch Program is a program run by the Federal goverment to pay for all or some of the breakfast and lunch costs for students in public and some non-public schools who qualify for the program. To qualify, the parent or guardian must submit their income information to the school. If they make at or below a certain amount, they qualify for the program.

     

    When you register at East Central High School, there is an application for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program. You are welcome to turn it in with your student's registration information or you can always come by the counseling department and pick up an application from our secretary, Mrs. Valadez.
