Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) BREAKFAST AND LUNCH IS FREE FOR ALL STUDENTS!!!
Shepherd Independent School District will continue its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2023-2024 school year. This means that all Shepherd ISD Schools serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge without the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
