Meal Payments & Balances

In the 2023-2024 school year, schools are required to continue charging for school meals on the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) based on program eligibility.

Why Are Meals Free To All At Other Campuses?
Certain districts in Kaufman County are able to provide free breakfast and lunch, for the 23-24 school year, because they are able to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The CEP is federally funded for low-income areas.  Crandall ISD does not qualify for this program.

We invite every family to please filll out the NSLP for free/reduced-price meals, to see if you would qualify for this program. The link is below, and we are accepting applications now.

Crandall ISD uses the My School Bucks website to provide the method for putting money in your child's account for cafeteria payment.
