State Aid Help

Dear Families:

You can help generate state aid for our school by completing the Application for Educational Benefits (https://www.barnesville.k12.mn.us/cms/lib/MN02204890/Centricity/ModuleInstance/898/202021%20Application%20for%20Educational%20Benefits.pdf)  and returning it to your school before December 15.   

You can also complete an online application by logging into your JMC parent account at https://barnesville.onlinejmc.com/.  Once logged in, click on >Register for 2020-21 on the left hand side and then Meals Application.  Complete the Meals Application, submit and you're done.   

Only one application is needed per household.  If you have already completed the application, you do not need to complete a new form.  However, if your income and/or number of  household members has changed since your original application, you may complete a new application at any time by returning the completed form to your child's school.

Students in households that meet the free or reduced-price meal income guidelines will generate compensatory revenue for their school. Schools must use compensatory revenue to meet the needs of students who are behind their peers, such as remedial instruction, instructional materials including digital learning and technology, bilingual programs and additional teachers and teacher aides. These applications may also make teachers in your school eligible for the federal Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program if they have outstanding college loans. However, the household must complete and return the forms, or complete the online form, no later than December 15 so the school can calculate eligibility and report to the Minnesota Department of Education

This will not impact your students’ eligibility to receive free meals during the 2020-21 school year.

Thank you!
