Impact on Program and Larger Community
This would greatly impact the 204 students in our district of 903 (22%). This will effect so much in our department and as a district over all. Just in my department, it would effect the following areas: more paperwork/labor hours, unpaid meal charges will go up, participation will go down, grant eligibility will go down, and the most important the children will suffer unnecessarily.
If the child is hungry the district impact will be more absences/less funding, poor test scores, more behavior problems, increased drop out rate......now lets talk about how that will effect the community! This is so wrong to punish a child, this is our future!!
