HOUSEHOLD ECONOMIC SURVEY

The normal Auburn-Washburn application process for free and reduced price meals will not be taking place this year. An online Household Economic Survey will be conducted in place of the free and reduced application. The State of Kansas is asking that all families review information related to the survey to determine if it is beneficial to complete the quick form.

Benefits of completing the survey include:
- Possible waiving of the Textbook & Technology fee ($125 per student)
- Possible waiving of activity and participation fees
- Access to specific funding for Auburn-Washburn that supports your child and their school

If you are close to being at or below the levels on the the chart located at usd437.net/files/dw/2021-2022/reduced-table.jpg, it is beneficial for your family to complete the form. Household income at or below these levels would likely qualify for free or reduced 2021-2022 school fees.

To complete the survey go to usd437.net/HES

Families who are directly certified do not need to complete the survey.
