In order to promote the health and academic success of students, HB1342 shall amend the current statute to extend the elimination of lunch copays for qualifying students from prekindergarten through 12th grade, beginning in the 2021-22 school year.

"Lunch copay" means the amount a student who qualifies for a reduced-price lunch is charged for a reduced-price lunch.

Program implementation, which may also include a summer meals program, shall be at the discretion of the superintendent and the school districts.

Amendment adopted on 2.12.21.

  • Removes the condition that eliminating lunch copays for K-12 students that qualify for reduced-price lunches is subject to availability of appropriated funds. Requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to allocate funds for this purpose.
