Those families who have not submitted their annual National School Lunch Program application are missing out on these and other benefits! <br></p><p>“The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is currently providing free meals to all public school students because of the ongoing pandemic, though approximately 11,000 students who have not already submitted their meal application, are still eligible for a number of school related benefits," said Donna Pittenger, Executive Director of Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service. “These include reduced SAT/ACT exam registration fees, discounts on home internet service, as well as discounted Katy ISD fine arts and athletic fees," added Pittenger.</p><p>Meal benefits applications for the 2021-2022 school year are available on the <a href="https://www.schoolcafe.com/katyisd" target="_blank">Katy ISD School Cafe</a>​. Families must submit a new meal benefits application each year, and only one application is required per household. The application should be completed by September 30 to take full advantage of all of the benefits.</p><p>For additional information about meal benefits, visit the <a href="https://katyisdfoodservices.com/" target="_blank">Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service website</a>. <br></p></div>

Katy ISD Teacher School Supply "Wishes" Become a Reality Katy ISD Teacher School Supply "Wishes" Become a Reality 2021-08-31T14:42:59Z<div class="ExternalClass9EB0A7599B0740CDA41BDF58BA2FD943"><p>​<span style="text-align:justify;">Katy Independent School District has once again partnered with Amazon to help teachers purchase some of those additional items they “wish" they could have to enhance their classroom experiences. The District is providing its teachers up to $200 each to spend through a district-funded account ​​</span><span style="text-align:justify;">for consumable classroom supply purchases such as pens, color pencils, paper and small student incentives. </span><span style="text-align:justify;">This is in addition to the instructional supplies and materials already provided through Katy ISD campus budgets. </span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">“These funds are intended to assist teachers with purchasing those few extra items they would love to have in their classrooms that may further supplement a learning experience they have planned for their students," said Dr. Ken Gregorski, Superintendent of Schools.  “Our educators have always gone above and beyond for our learners, especially during these past 18 months. We hope they will enjoy this opportunity to purchase some additional items for their classrooms," added Gregorski.   <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Katy Instructional Teacher Supply Budget (KITSB)  is separate from campus budgets and does not affect Katy ISD's overall instructional material and supply budget.  Beginning next week, teachers will be able to log into Amazon to select the items they wish to purchase.  It is the expectation this initiative will help with personal out-of-pocket expenses incurred by some teachers. <br></p><p><br></p></div>
