TDA has updated its guidance for schools that choose (not mandated) to serve all children breakfast at no cost. Now, all schools offering Universal Breakfast (all students served breakfast for free), whether by choice or by mandate, will receive $0.30 per reduced-price breakfast claimed from TDA unless the school opts out. Schools offering Universal Breakfast must continue to show $0.00 for both the paid and reduced-price costs within the site application, as TX-UNPS will not allow a listed reduced-price cost to exceed the price of a paid breakfast. If you are offering Universal Breakfast and wish to opt out of the reimbursement, please submit a Request to Opt Out of State Reimbursement for Reduced-Price Breakfasts form (
https://app.smartsheet.com/b/publish?EQBCT=9e370e2880b84f998eed726cc8f2ecf2 ). Please refer to the FAQs on the Reduced-Price Breakfast page (https://squaremeals.org/Programs/School-Breakfast-Program/Reduced-Price-Breakfast-Now-Free ) for more information on State-provided reimbursement for reduced-price breakfasts.
