PLE documents (verification of data and compliance options) must be emailed to GFPLE@cde.state.co.us no later than Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
In an effort to assist all SFAs with the annual completion of the USDA Paid Lunch Equity requirement, the CDE Office of Grants Fiscal has extracted data from the CO Child Nutrition Hub and supplied all SFAs with data needed (via Excel spreadsheet) to complete the PLE tool. Tools were emailed to all SFAs on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016. To complete the process, email a copy of the completed tool to GFPLE@cde.state.co.us no later than Tuesday, May 31, 2016. Please contact Megan Meermans with questions.
