Application for Educational Benefits

Is this for me?

YES. We are asking every family to complete this process every year. You can either complete an Application for Educational Benefits online through the JMC portal OR fill out the paper copy and bring or mail it to the district office.


The benefit for you: If your family qualifies, your students can receive free or reduced-price meals and possibly other benefits, including discounts for participation in athletics, band and other activities. 

The benefit for schools: Some school funding is based on number of students who qualify for benefits. So by filling out an application, you are helping to ensure District 4 gets all the funding it's entitled.
