Local Education Agencies that used cafeteria funds for unallowable purposes should, by June 30, 2014, review all guidance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the California Department of Education to better understand what these funds can be used for.
The appropriate staff members & the Director of the Student Nutrition Department have reviewed the appropriate guidance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture & the California Department of Education. They will complete an annual review of employees & determine if their federal time documentation can be satisfied by a periodic personnel certification or through a personnel activity report. Those employees working 100% time on the Federal Child Nutrition Programs will complete the semiannual periodic certification at the beginning of the year, fall semester, & subsequently at the beginning of the calendar year, & spring semester. Those employees determined to be working for both CNP & an additional activity or cost objective will complete a monthly PAR or equivalent documentation.
Agency responses received are posted verbatim.
