Does anyone know how I can run a report that shows the student's Meal Status such as Free, reduced, or direct cert?  Also, has anyone ever used PowerSchool to run a verification report for meals?  We used to use Tyler and it would pull students for verification and I am needing to do that.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @bfennewald97 


You can refer to this article on PowerLunch, the lunch management portion of PowerSchool. The system helps you monitor meals sold, including free and reduced lunches, as well as student account balances and transactions.


Also, please review the PowerLunch-reports and let us know this pulls the data you needed.

I see, my apologies for missing that! Let me adjust my response:

"Absolutely! Understanding the Meal Status for students is crucial. Have you explored running a report in PowerSchool? It might offer insights into students' statuses like Free, Reduced, or Direct Cert. As for the verification report, transitioning from Tyler can be a shift, but PowerSchool might have similar functionalities. Have you checked their verification options? Sometimes these systems have comparable features. Also, when it comes to managing meal statuses, finding the best barbacoa in San Antonio might be easier than navigating through these systems!"
