All families receiving free or reduced lunch must reapply each year. Those families who have not applied this year will no longer receive Free or Reduced meals after September 25th. Hyde Park students benefit in 2 ways from the free or reduced lunch program. First and foremost, it is very difficult for hungry students to focus on their school work; well-nourished students are more productive. In addition, our school's Title 1 funds are determined by our percentage of students that receive free or reduced lunches based on applications. That funding is used to buy technology, provide after school tutoring, and lower class sizes, among other benefits for our students. Applications may be completed online at , or paper applications are available in the school office. If you have any questions, please contact the school at (702)799-4260.
For attendance at industry meetings, conventions and other events such as the annual NIGP Forum & Products Exposition, applicants may only claim contact hours at a rate of eight (8) contact hours per day maximum, but only for sessions and workshops that are specific to procurement and include a speaker, instructor, trainer, facilitator or moderator. Example: 1 and 1/2 hours of qualifying instructor-led training/education equals contact hours. Networking, tradeshows, entertainment and social events are excluded and are not applicable for contact hours. This exclusion applies to stand alone events as well as those that are part of larger events such as the annual NIGP Forum & Products Exposition.
Plagiarism and copying can be problematic in graded coursework. Easily accessible websites have given students opportunities to copy ideas and even complete essays, and remain undetected despite measures to detect this. While coursework may give learners the chance to improve their grades, it also provides an opportunity to "cheat the system". Also, there is often controversy regarding the type and amount of help students can receive while performing coursework. In most learning institutions, plagiarism or unreasonable coursework help may lead to coursework disqualification, student expulsion, or both.
