What is the financial health of Maine School Districts School Food Service Departments in the NSLP.

The excel spreadsheet lists districts as reported on their monthly claim form for School Year 2014: excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet list the Maine districts and reported cash balances, local support, unpaid year end bills and free/reduced per cent. The information is taken directly from the monthly claim forms.

 

 

INDIRECT COSTS:

Maine currently does not have a delegation agreement in place with US DOE which allow school district to charge the National School lunch program or any other Federal program indirect costs.  Indirect costs rates must be approved by the Department of Education and no such costs have been approved or a method in place to do so.  Therefore no food service program should be charged indirect costs.  If so that must be ended and the indirect costs charged to the program must be reversed.
