The bipartisan funding deal approved by the House of Representatives on Tuesday includes language extending the USDA Child Nutrition waiver authority.

The move will give public schools the flexibility and support they need to continue school lunch and breakfast programs, and also allows child and adult care centers to operate as non-congregate and waives certain meal pattern requirements.

Blaming the Uttar Pradesh government of misleading people with its employment data released last week, Samajwadi Party on Sunday said that the BJP government in the state included jobs given during the Akhilesh Yadav regime in its data.

Enrollment drops in school district that includes Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Enrollment in the Clark County School District, which includes Las Vegas, has declined by more than 10,000 students during the start of the fall semester online.

Data show there are 307,210 students enrolled for this 2020 academic year compared to 317,893 students enrolled for the 2019 academic year, showing a drop of more than 10,600 students.

The figures show the third straight decline in enrollment since the district reached more than 321,000 students in 2017.
