All schools in Kansas with 35% or more of students eligible for reduced price or free meals are required by State law (KSA 72-5125) to offer the School Breakfast Program. Schools with less than 35% of students eligible are required to operate the program unless a current waiver has been approved by the Kansas State Board of Education. The waiver process is conducted annually using the following schedule:

Feb - Waiver forms are updated and available

April - Waiver forms are due to KSDE

May - Waiver Review Committee meets to review waiver requests and develop recommendations for approval or denial

June - State Board of Education receives the recommendations of the Waiver Review Committee and acts to approve/deny waiver requests. Schools are notified of the decision.

To receive a waiver application and further information about the criteria and process, contact Arleen Anderson at 785-296-2276 or
