Community Eligibility Provision

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are pleased to inform you that the Westwood Community School District will be participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the School Year 2016-2017.

The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at our school are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE to your household each day of the 2016-2017 school year.

We are asking that you fill out and sign the Household Information Survey, which is needed for administrative purposes, not to determine eligibility.  This survey allows our school to benefit from various State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At Risk (31a), Title II A, E- Rate, etc.  This survey is critical in determining the amount of money the school receives from a variety of supplemental programs.  We are asking that you please complete and submit it as soon as possible.

All information on the survey submitted is confidential. Without your assistance, the school cannot maximize utilization of available State and Federal funds.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at 313 565-3269.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Martin –Green

Online Learning Resources

 

Section 21f of the State School Aid Act allows students in grades 6 through 12 who are enrolled in a Michigan public local district or public school academy (not including full-time cyber schools) to take up to two online courses per academic term with consent from their parent or guardian. Consent of the parent or legal guardian is not required if the student is at least age 18 or is an emancipated minor.

The site is populated with course titles and syllabi submitted by local school districts, intermediate school districts and the Michigan Virtual School. Course syllabi include information such as course descriptions, course outlines, price and more.

Michigan’s Online Course Catalog allows visitors to search through online course offerings without needing to register for an account. Two different search options are provided:

1) Local District Catalog Search
Use this search functionality to browse the available online course titles from a specific district as well as titles from other providers that the district highlighted for their students.

2) Statewide Catalog Search
Use this search functionality to browse the online course titles available to students attending any qualifying Michigan public school.

The site is intended to be a general source of information for parents, students, and schools to provide them with the information needed to make enrollment decisions. Enrollment in online courses does not occur through the website. Instead, each course syllabus includes the contact information for enrolling in the online course.

Parents and students can use Michigan’s Online Course Catalog to locate courses, but should not enroll students into course themselves. In order to ensure the online courses are paid for and recognized by the local school district, enrollment should be handled by the local school.
