Administrative Review for School Nutrition Programs


School Nutrition Programs | Program Guidance | Forms | Resources | Nutrition Education

The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, as amended by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA), requires a unified accountability system designed to ensure that school food authorities (SFAs) comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) requirements for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP). The Act also requires an accountability system that conducts administrative reviews (ARs) to evaluate NSLP and SBP requirements during a three-year cycle. The AR requirements are defined in 7 CFR 210.18

ARs are conducted by school nutrition programs staff from the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE). The resources in the Documents/Forms and Related/Resources sections help SFAs prepare for the AR. For additional assistance, contact your CSDE school nutrition consultant.
