The Idaho State Department of Education, Child Nutrition program was awarded a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Direct Certification (DC) grant in October 2008. Under direct certification, school districts use information from the State Health and Welfare database to certify children to receive free meals. The purpose of this grant is to implement an "Electronic Direct Certification" process throughout the State of Idaho. This newsletter discusses DC and this grant, including the upcoming training that will occur regionally throughout the state.
