Administrative Guidance for Verification of National School Lunch, Breakfast and Special Milk Applications.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
This manual delineates procedures for the mandatory verification of 3 percent of the applications for national school food programs. Two methods of selection are described: random and "error prone profiling." The latter involves selecting for verification those applicants whose recorded monthly income is closest to the eligibility cutoff and/or who are not receiving food stamps. (Such applications are four times more likely to contain an error than those selected at random). Other topics include guidelines for notification of selection, collateral contacts, reduction or termination of benefits, detailed verification procedures, and assorted questions and answers for administrative guidance, covering a wide range of contingencies. The appendix includes sample letters, notifications, and documentation forms. (TE)
