From deciding to implement to informing parents and students, communication
is an important key to making CEP a success.
Communication – Superintendent
Work with the superintendent to determine if CEP is the right choice for your Contracting
Communication – Financial Director
Coordinate with the financial directors to evaluate the impact of CEP on child nutrition,
as well as CE’s funding as a whole.
Communication – PEIMS Coordinator
Early conversations with the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS)
Coordinator can ensure the CE has a method of identifying socioeconomic data for the
purposes of reporting PEIMS data.
Communication – Child Nutrition Staff
Ensure child nutrition staff are aware of any administrative changes that will occur
because of CEP implementation.
Communication – Community Partners
Consider partnering with community organizations to get the word out about CEP once
the CE has adopted it.
Communication – Parents and Students
Once CEP is implemented, notify parents and students that meals will be served at no-cost.
