Food Service Update: During the height of the pandemic the federal government allowed all students to eat free of charge. Congress did not extend that benefit for our new school year. Students may still qualify, but will be required to fill out a free/ reduced application form. Applications can be filled out online at schoolcafe.com/milanssd or a paper copy will be available at each of the schools. Only one application per family is needed. Lunch prices for the 2022/2023 school year will be $2.75 for MMS and MHS students and $2.50 for MES. Breakfast will remain free of charge.
Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is open for all returning and new students.

When you train and teach someone for their next steps at #MilanCTE, they become yours. When you have multiple “yours”, sometimes you are kneecapped with the time to help them all. But wanting the best for them doesn’t stop with the diploma. Christina McKnight is an MHS 2022 graduate that reached out this month with a request for a better job with a company that would help support her goals and dreams. Say no more. Props to our industry partner, Patrick McHale and the staff of NHC Healthcare. He saw the dynamic potential in this kid and said YES. Christina had some government type paperwork that needed to be handled so that she could take the next steps towards self sufficiency. This teacher had 4 nursing shifts scheduled and was panicked. I was helpless as I was budgeted out in my time. Enter Kimberly Hudgins and the Innovative High School Grant-GCSSD, TSSD and MSSD. We gained her through our Work Coach position created by this grant and she has proven irreplaceable. Kim has taken Christina all over this side of the state to gather paperwork and help her gain needed documents to start work, and get this permit. Kim didn’t flinch-she just dug in and made phone calls, and set appointments. She went above and beyond. THIS is what a CTE education can do for you. THIS is the behind the scenes and the science of our success. THIS is a team that is built to do whatever it takes. #PathAndAPlanFORALL
