Subject: Public Charge Final Rule: Potential Impact on Public Education and Programs Provided by Schools

 

Dear Program Operators:

On August 14, 2019, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security amended federal regulations known as the public charge rule. The changes to the existing rule, effective October 15, 2019, will make it more difficult to apply for permanent residency or earn a visa if an applicant is dependent on government aid such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, housing assistance, and Medicaid. 

It is important to communicate to your families that the Child Nutrition Programs are not public benefits. Please continue to encourage families to complete meal applications and alternative meal forms. 

The California State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Thurmond, released a letter regarding the Public Charge Final Rule: Potential Impact on Public Education and Programs Provided by Schools and is on the California Department of Education (CDE) website at https://www.cde.ca.gov/nr/el/le/yr19ltr0916.asp.

The CDE has also created a Safe Haven web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/eo/in/safehavens.asp. This page includes template letters for households in both English and Spanish as well as the most frequently asked questions the department has received related to the public charge final rule.

Subject: U.S. Department of Agriculture Announced New And Justice for All Posters Available Soon

 

Dear Program Operator:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Civil Rights has announced new And Justice for All posters have been developed and are being printed. The Nutrition Services Division (NSD) will be sending all Program Operators one poster for each site listed in the Child Nutrition Information and Payment System (CNIPS).

Posters will be sent to Program Operators according to their mailing addresses in CNIPS. Program Operators should review their mailing address in CNIPS for accuracy to ensure there is no delay in receiving new posters. Another Listserv will be sent out when the NSD begins distributing the new And Justice for All posters.

The USDA has given guidance that Program Operators should not remove their old And Justice for All posters until the new posters have been received. However, the And Justice for All poster should be removed from websites, training presentations, and any pending printing of brochures, pamphlets and materials, and replaced with the appropriate PDF version. The PDF versions can be found on the USDA And Justice for All Posters web page at https://www.fns.usda.gov/cr/and-justice-all-posters-guidance-and-translations.

Missing And Justice for All posters will continue to not be a finding during your administrative reviews until further notice.

If you have any questions regarding this subject, please contact Heather Sashington, Civil Rights and Complaints Coordinator, by phone at 916-322-2134 or by email at hsashington@cde.ca.gov.
