Instructions for Completing Online Application

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. 

Completing and submitting this application provides the district with compensatory revenue that directly supports our schools and our students’ education.

Compensatory funding supports students at Fridley Public Schools by:

  • Providing additional teachers for reading intervention and extended math instruction.
  • Supporting smaller literacy instruction class sizes in elementary schools by reducing the teacher – student ratio.
  • Providing student guidance and support services (deans and counselors) who support students on attendance, school completion/graduation, and college-career readiness.
  • Supporting direct instruction for English language learners.

To apply online: 

  • Online application process averages 10-15 minutes
  • Factors considered in the application process are household size and total income
  • Parents/guardians need their student’s PERSON ID# to apply online
  • Parents/guardians only need to complete one application per family
