This is good. I hope for MVWSD poor kids also. There might have been a recent TRUMP DROP in the number of kids who apply for Federal FRSM (Free & Reduced Student Meals) because of the Federal Regulation change in the Dept of Agriculture program. Free FEDERAL food/then no citizenship possible for you or your family! That is what a change in Cabinet-level Regulations can do.

That might be scaring away a lot of Theuerkauf parents. See the MVWSD Board item for Title 1 waiver for TH on the last Bd. Agenda (January 7th).

Our Supervisor Joe - shows his compassion and legislative meddle again.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
