School Food Service Reviews and Review Information
School Year 2013-2014 will begin a new review process. Part of this review process includes the School District completing an "Off Site Assestment Tool". This document must be completed prior to the arrival of the reviewer.
This year SY2013 there will be three types of reviews conducted by the state agency. There will be no CRE reviews this school year. Starting next year SY2014 districts will be on a max of a 3 year cycle and include all USDA programs during the review.
Follow-up reviews: I review as a result of prior year finding. State Agency is required to follow-up on 25% of the districts that had findings.
Additional Administrative Reviews (AAR): this review is an additional review required by regulations. Districts are elected based on a risk factor.
Menu Validation Review (MVR): These reviews are to validate the information submitted for certification to receive the additional performance reimbursement was accurate and has continued. The state Agency must conduct a review on 25% of the certified districts. This will keep growing each month.
There are several items needed to complete the review. Collecting the information ahead of time will cause less stress for you and a smoother day of review.
Items that will be needed and asked for during the follow-up and AAR reviews are:
* a copy will be needed for the reviewer's file.
