The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) School Programs team is happy to announce the details for our mandatory annual training. Attendance at this training is required for all School Food Authorities (SFA) participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and/or the School Breakfast Program (SBP), so please plan to come or send a representative.
In the school nutrition environment, individual employees can make a big difference in a positive way while overseeing food service operations. Responsibilities can include planning, administering, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating all aspects of the School Nutrition program to ensure meals are nutritious, age-appropriate, appealing, compliant, and cost-effective. As a State Agency, we want to provide each SFA with materials necessary to operate an effective and compliant food service program. Therefore, we’re going to keep this short and sweet, but we still have lots of important information to cover: policy updates, meal pattern updates, production records, smart snacks, the Fresh Fruit Vegetable Program, accountability and claiming, civil rights and the new professional standards requirements. Please come ready to participate in some interactive activities!
It is imperative that representatives from your SFA managing the various administrative and technical duties related to school food service and reporting requirements attend this MANDATORY training. One additional staff member may also attend; it is not recommended for teachers.
There are two sessions available: Monday, September 21, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday, September 24, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at OSSE's main office, located at 810 First St. NE, Grand Hall A &B. The sessions are identical, so you only need to attend one or the other. Please select a date when you register. The registration for each session will close when it reaches capacity. So, if you have a strong preference for which session you attend, it is strongly recommended to register immediately. Make up training information will be provided at a later date and time.
