Community Eligibility Provision

We are excited to announce that Chesapeake Public Schools now has 16 schools that fall under the Community Eligibility Provision or CEP. This provision allows all students enrolled at those schools to receive breakfast and lunch meals at no cost, without having to submit a meal application. CEP schools for the 2020-2021 school year are:

  • BM Williams
  • Camelot Elementary
  • Carver Intermediate
  • Chesapeake Center for Student Success (CCSS)
  • Crestwood Intermediate
  • Georgetown Primary
  • Great Bridge SECEP
  • Norfolk Highlands Primary
  • Oscar Smith Middle
  • Portlock Primary
  • Rena B Wright Primary
  • Southwestern Elementary
  • Sparrow Road Intermediate
  • Thurgood Marshall Elementary
  • Treakle Elementary
  • Truitt Intermediate

If there are other students in your household that do not attend these schools, you will still need to submit a meal benefit application for them to receive free or reduced-price meal benefits unless you have been notified by our department that you do not need to submit an application.
