Direct Certification Process. Nourishing News. Volume 4, Issue 3
Idaho State Department of Education
This newsletter discusses the Electronic Direct Certification process and provides additional insight as needed. Under this New Direct Certification process school districts compare information from their student information system to Idaho State Department of Health and Welfare database to certify children receiving Food Stamps or TAFI as categorically eligible for free school meals in the Idaho Child Nutrition Programs. This system is very secure and only authorized users who have a need to know will be granted access. This system allows access to very sensitive information and the password absolutely cannot be shared with anyone. A School Food Authority can have access to more than one district but must justify the need. The articles included in this issue are: (1) The Electronic Direct Certification Program (Lynda Westphal); (2) Standardized Recipe Components Required Components; (3) Confidentiality and Direct Certification (Mary Jo Marshall); (4) Verification Procedure (Anna Mae Florence); and (5) The Joys of Standardized Recipes (Colleen Fillmore).
