Healthy School Food Policy:

All students are provided with breakfast, lunch and snack, free of charge regardless of income.  If a student chooses to bring a lunch to school, it must be a complete lunch that aligns with our Wellness Policy.   “The school district encourages parents to pack healthy lunches and snacks and refrain from including beverages and foods without nutritional value.”  There are two main reasons for this policy:

  • children are able to concentrate and learn better when they have foods with nutritional value in the bodies.
  • NECP receives federal funding for our lunch program (and it is against that policy) to have food available without nutritional value for our students

Additionally, any food that is brought from home can only be consumed by that student and not shared with others because of the risk of food allergies.  If students bring pop, candy, gum or chips to school they will not be allowed to eat it at school and it may be confiscated.

If a student is celebrating a birthday and they would like to celebrate with their class, they can not bring in cake or cupcakes but can bring in snacks from the healthy school food policy list or purchase items (i.e. stickers, pencils, etc.) for every student in the class.   It is completely optional to bring in items on a students’ birthday.

Northeast College Prep works to accommodate all food allergies with meals and snacks and everyone is provided food and access to seconds on the share table.  Northeast College Prep spends above and beyond the federal school food program reimbursed amount to ensure that all students have enough to eat because students are able to learn better if they are not hungry.  Additionally, Northeast College Prep partners with Every Meal to provide free meals to students on the weekends.  This program is open to anyone who wants it, regardless of income level.  If you would like to donate to support Northeast College Prep’s food programs, please contact Erika Sass at 612-248-8243.

Testing & Assessments:

Students at Northeast College Prep take all required state assessments.  Additionally, students take internal assessments with their classroom teacher to track progress and help inform instruction.  Northeast College Prep balances the number and type of assessments to preserve instructional time.  Click here to view the 2022-2023 Assessment Calendar.
