What is the BISD Charging Policy?
Burleson ISD allows two full meals to be charged. If no lunch money has been deposited after the two meals are served, we will unfortunately have to serve an alternate meal (Ham Sandwich with a milk). We never allow the charging of snacks or second portions. We accept Checks, Cash, and Online Payments.

Public School Nutrition Policy At-A-Glance
Schools are in a powerful position to influence children’s lifelong eating habits. To support this role and help combat the childhood obesity crisis, the Texas Department of Agriculture created new nutrition guidelines for public schools participating in the federally funded Child Nutrition Programs. These quick reference guides outlines the policies for Texas elementary schools, effective Aug. 1, 2004.

Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Why do teachers and adults pay more for lunch?
Anyone who is not a student in the district will pay more for their breakfast and lunch because no federal subsidy is received for a non-student lunch.
Federal funds subsidize the school-age students lunch and breakfast, lowering the cost for families.
The price charged for non-students must be the full price of the meal unless local tax money or income from other sources are used to subsidize the non-student lunches.
2. Will the other students know that my Child is on the Free & Reduced Program?
No, all information is kept confidential at all times. Even at the register, everyone goes through the same way with no distiniction. Since many families pay online, there is very little exchange of cash, and cashiers will never identify your student by their pay status.
