Katy ISD Announces Free/Reduced Meal Application and Charging Policyhttp://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=1061Katy ISD Announces Free/Reduced Meal Application and Charging Policy2019-07-15T16:18:30Z<div class="ExternalClassEFAEEC479A4B47B6A374AA26B3EB7FD7"><p>Because every meal counts for students, prior to the start of the 2019-20 school year, the Katy Independent School District Food & Nutrition Department encourages all families to review the free/reduced meal income eligibility guidelines as well as the charge policy for purchasing meals from Katy ISD.  A copy of the policy may be viewed at: http://www.squaremeals.com/Publications/IncomeEligibilityGuidelines.aspx<br></p><p>Children living in households whose income are at or below the federally approved levels, based on household size, may be eligible for meal benefits. Transfer students approved for the program from another school district may either complete a Katy ISD application or provide documentation of their eligibility status for that same school year.  Foster children who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for benefits regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside, an application must be submitted.  Households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Food Distribution Programs on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) are also eligible. Children with status as homeless, runaway, migrant or displaced by a declared disaster also qualify for meals.   </p><p>Eligible households must complete an online application prior to the start of school. The new online application can be submitted through <a href="http://www.schoolcafe.com/KatyISD">www.SchoolCafe.com/KatyISD</a> <strong>beginning the first week of August for the 2019-2020 school year.</strong><strong>  </strong>Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service Department is working with local agencies to identify all children who are categorically and program eligible.  *If your student receives a notification of approval the first days of school then you do not need to complete a new application for the 2019-2020 school year.<strong> </strong>Any household that does not receive a notification and feels it should have or are missing any students on the notification you received, please contact the Nutrition and Food Service Department at 281-396-6240.  Additional information regarding the Nutrition and Food Service department can be found at the district website <a href="http://www.katyisdfoodservices.com/">www.katyisdfoodservices.com</a></p><p>Paper applications will NOT be distributed this upcoming school year; all applications must be submitted online.  If the online application is unavailable, paper applications are available at any district school and at the food service office.  If your children were part the program at the end of the previous school year, they are eligible for the same benefit for the first 30 operating days of the new school year or until a new application is processed.  <strong>A new application per household is required each school year. </strong></p><p>The Nutrition and Food Service Department is located at 5364 Franz Rd, Katy, TX 77493. Staff is available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. to assist parents/guardians in completing the application, starting the second week of August. Bring names of all members of the household and their <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Gross Monthly Income</span>. For any questions, call the Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service Department office at 281-396-6240.<strong>  </strong></p><p>Applications are accepted any time during the school year; the 2019-2020 online application will be available two weeks before school starts.<strong>  </strong>The information households provide on the application will be used for the purpose of determining meal eligibility.  Application information may be verified by school officials at any time during the school year.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Charge Policy:</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">District charge policy allows students without meal money to receive the menu choice with the expectation that the parent will reimburse all meals charged.  The elementary charge policy allows for the value of 10 breakfast meals and 10 lunch meals to be charged.  When the charge limit is reached, the elementary student will receive a milk for breakfast or a milk and cereal for lunch. The secondary charge policy allows for the value of three breakfast meals and three lunch meals to be charged.  When the charge limit is reached, the secondary student will be declined.  Parents will be alerted when their child charges a meal by receiving a courtesy call and/or email through the district automated call out system, if the district parent information is correct and up-to-date.  Parents are responsible for monitoring the amount of money in their child's account and paying back any borrowed money in a timely manner.  If a student owes money, he/she will not be allowed to purchase snacks and/or a la carte on this account until the account is paid in full.   </p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>2019-2020 School Year</strong></p><p

Katy ISD Teachers and Employees to See Six Percent Pay Increasehttp://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=1057Katy ISD Teachers and Employees to See Six Percent Pay Increase2019-06-25T00:29:14Z<div class="ExternalClassB0357914A5DC478DB02EDE8A32AD2C06"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">This coming school year all Katy ISD employees will receive an approximate six percent pay increase, while teachers and instructional paraprofessionals will have the opportunity to earn up to eight percent. The additional two percent increase for those teachers and paraprofessionals will derive from an attendance-based performance incentive.</span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The base salary increase for employees will come in the form of an approximate four percent raise, with two other lump sums during the fall semester— one August 15 for returning staff, and the other in December for all employees.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">"After making sure we reward all of our staff, there is some additional money we've set aside to focus on those folks who have the greatest impact on student performance — our classroom teachers," said Ken Gregorski, Katy ISD Superintendent.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The District also plans on providing stability through its benefits package. While some Texas school districts anticipate premium increases this coming school year, Katy ISD will be holding its benefit premiums at last year's rates. Likewise, the District's existing health insurance plans will remain unchanged. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"My commitment upon accepting this position was to focus on taking care of our employees through a competitive compensation package, thus ensuring we're able to recruit and retain the best teachers around," said Gregorski.  "This pay increase, alongside the stability in benefits costs, is the most significant investment in Katy ISD's employee compensation package in recent District history," he added. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Katy ISD's move to increase pay for all employees and offer additional compensation incentives for teachers, is in part due to the District's long term fiscal management practices, along with the passage of Senate Bill 500 that provides Harvey related refunds and House Bill 3, with the District's compensation plan exceeding the priorities established by the Texas Legislature.<br></p><p><br></p></div>
