Application for Educational Benefits
Monday, October 21, 2019 7:30 AM

We still have over 300 families who have not submitted an Application for Educational Benefits form (lunch form).  ALL families must complete this annually.  Forms may be obtained at the Armatage office or online (  Please complete as soon as possible so valuable staff time is not spent making phone calls.  Parents may check a box if they believe their child does not qualify for free or reduced lunch. 

These forms determine a school’s level of state (compensatory ed)  and federal (Title I) dollars that are allocated to support students with additional resources.
