2021 LSWP Triennial Assessment Waiver
On June 11, 2021, the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued COVID–19: Child Nutrition Response #98, Nationwide Waiver of Local School Wellness Policy (LSWP) Triennial Assessment in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs . This waiver allows local educational agencies (LEA) participating in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program to submit a request to the California Department of Education (CDE) Nutrition Services Division (NSD) extending the deadline to complete their first LSWP triennial assessment from June 30, 2021, to June 30, 2022. LEAs requesting the deadline extension would then be required to complete their second triennial assessment by June 30, 2025.
LEAs wishing to accept this new deadline must submit a waiver application by June 30, 2021: the LSWP triennial assessment extension waiver application.
Once you submit the application, you will receive an email notification from the CDE on your waiver request.
