A program beginning next school year will increase student access to nutritious meals and ease the burden of paperwork and financial strain on families. Ohio is one of 14 states selected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to participate in the Direct Certification with Medicaid Demonstration Project. Ohio’s participation, which starts in the 2023-2024 school year, will allow households that receive Medicaid to automatically qualify for free or reduced-price school meals for their school-age children.
The Summer Food Service Program ensures that children ages 1-18 continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer break from school, when they do not have access to school breakfast or lunch. The Ohio Department of Education is seeking local nonprofit agencies to participate as sponsors or sites for this year’s Summer Food Service Program.
Interim Superintendent of Public Instruction Stephanie Siddens and Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted announced Ohio's 2023 Business-Education Leader Awards for Excellent Business Advisory Councils.

The Ohio Department of Education today awarded $5 million to libraries across the state to expand learning opportunities for students in prekindergarten-grade 12.
