Since 1924, the parents of students in Highland Park ISD have administered the school lunch program. By defining the areas of responsibility with regard to cafeteria facilities and equipment, providing clarifying information, and suggesting strategies concerning the operational aspects of the school lunch programs, HPISD and the individual PTAs hope to accomplish the following:
- Establish clear directions and training for the volunteer members of the Cafeteria Committees who have undertaken the responsibility for maintaining and improving the school lunch program.
- Maintain continuity as the membership of the committee change from year to year.
In this way, HPISD and its students will continue to benefit from nutritious meals provided at a reasonable cost and the involvement of hundreds of hardworking, dedicated parents in the daily operations of the schools.
