How Do I Apply to Participate in the SSO?

Seamless Summer Option (SSO) agreement, forms and guidance.

To apply for the SSO, public schools and county offices of education must update their CNIPS account by adding participating sites to the site application(s)-Seamless Summer link for each proposed site that plans to operate the SSO. Please remember to apply at least 30 days prior to the start of your SSO program.

Important: Schools must wait for approval before serving Seamless Option meals at proposed sites. Failure to receive pre-approval will result in loss of reimbursement.

SSO Forms

Use the following forms to document meal counts and site-monitoring visits. Maintain these documents in your office files.

SSO Guidance
