La Joya school district officials have added new controls for the districts free lunch program they say should help pass a state audit later this year.
The district is in danger of losing federal funding for up to five years for the program after successive state reviews showed it was distributing an excessive number of free lunches.
The Monitor reported in September the district is currently paying about $1.5 million out-of-pocket each month for its free breakfasts and lunches for low-income students.
More than 90 percent of students at La Joya campuses rely on the program for free breakfasts and lunch.

EVERY Skrewl kid in Seguin ISD (Central Tx) gets Free Breakfast....
Not sure why there would be an Audit at La Joya...
unless they are feeding the whole town and not just the Skrewl kids.

Mom's smokin' the welfare and foodstamps up and Johnny needs to get fed SOMEwhere ... and goes for seconds (counted as a separate meal), thus Johnny's breakfast is two ... or three.
THE ABOVE IS A GUESS

bingo...a few years ago it was discovered that school board members of a nearby town (also heavily hispanic and democrat) were serving school bought chicken at their backyard barbeques. This is a notoriously corrupt area.
Want to find out how much the school food is really costing? Compare it to what the local prison pays to feed the inmates.

The TX Dept of Ag audits each school district every 3 years now. Used to be 5 years. I am sure that this is a paperwork problem. Many school districts have a full time clerk just to take care of the applications for families that qualify for free or reduced lunches
Paperwork has to be renewed every year and someone probably got lazy. Also as long as 80% of the district qualifies for free lunch, then the whole district gets free lunches.
