Hello OMI Families,
The 2018-2019 school year coming quick. It is time to re register and prepare for orientation. We have included important information regarding the school meals, registration deadline, and orientation dates.
We are pleased to inform you that The Oakland Military Institute will be implementing a new option for the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for 2018-2019 School Year. Schools that participate in the CEP are able to provide healthy breakfasts and lunches each day at no charge for all students enrolled in that CEP school during the 2018-2019 School Year. All OMI students may be served one lunch and one breakfast at no charge. Second meals are available but they will be served for full price $2.75 for breakfast and $3.75 for lunch.
How do I add money/make a payment to my child’s account?
You can continue to send cash to the front office with your child or you can add money in Family Portal for Titank12: https://www.oakmil.org/apps/pages/mealaccount.
Is there a fee or service charge for making online payments?
A convenience fee may be charged for each online payment transaction. For example, if you make a $20.00 payment and the convenience fee is $2.50, the total debited from your credit card is $22.50. The available funds for your child will be $20.00.
Family Income Survey
We have added a new section to data confirmation the Family Income Survey. In January, Governor Jerry Brown introduced a proposal to fix the way we fund schools in California. The plan is called “Local Control Funding Formula” or “LCFF.” It shifts California’s way of funding schools to a simpler “need-based” education funding formula for students.
The Governor’s plan does the following:
With more funding targeted at high-need learners, schools districts can spend money on what matters, such as:
So what can you do to help? Our school has a limited time to gather the information needed to ensure that all eligible children are included in the count on the fall census day, the first Wednesday in October. The Family Income Survey is extremely important to your child’s school receiving the appropriate funding based on the information you provide. Please log in to the portal and complete the Family Income Survey through data confirmation.
