2nd Chance Breakfast

We kicked off a 2nd Chance Breakfast program this year along with providing hot breakfast before the bell. We are serving on average 24% of the students breakfast now every day. Our district last year averaged only 8% ADP for breakfast. This year, with a new school, it is exciting to see the growth we have had and to be able to serve these students breakfast on a daily basis. The students grab a bag of breakfast and take it into the classroom to eat. Easy and simple to do and works well for everyone.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

With the overall participation levels where we are at it, would be hard to take this program away. It has sustainability.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Better behaviors and fewer students feeling ill in the morning.
