School district to use collection agency to reclaim unpaid lunch balances

Cranston School District in Cranston, R.I., has hired a collection agency to help reduce its lunch debt, NBC 10 reports.

The district’s chief operating officer sent a letter to parents saying that the district would be using a collection agency next year to collect outstanding lunch balances after other collection methods have failed. Parents who owe $20 or more and haven’t paid in the last 60 days will receive a letter from the agency starting Jan. 2, 2019.  

Cranston accumulated $95,508 in unpaid lunch balances between Sept. 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018. The district’s meal debt for this school year is $45,859.

The district says it will continue to provide the same meals to students regardless of whether they can pay.
