    • Textbook Assistance: For financial assistance with textbook fees, check the box on the back of the free/reduced lunch application
    • Elementary Backsacks Program: For weekend food, see school counselor
    • High School - ACT/SAT Testing Fees: See school counselor
    • High School - Dual Credit/AP Courses: See school counselor
    • Discounted Internet service :$9.95 per month through Comcast — Internet Essentials — 1-855-846-8376

    • Discounts for Sports Program Fees: See school Athletic Director
    • iCare afterschool program: limited scholarships available - See BCSC website

    You can access the Free/Reduced application on the BCSC website  or the main office at your child’s school. You must reapply each year unless you have received a Direct Certification notice letter for the current school year

    SNAP

    If you meet the free lunch qualifications your family may also qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.  To learn more about SNAP, contact Suzi Bruin, BCSC Nutrition Assistance Coordinator, at 812-314-3851 or bruins@bcsc.k12.in.us

    The federal eligibility income guidelines have changed from last year and your family may now be eligible.
