FRAC recently released a joint report with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), Breakfast After the Bell: Equipping Students for Academic Success, Secondary School Principals Share What Work (pdf). The report showcases that more and more secondary school principals are urging others to adopt breakfast after the bell programs, citing higher participation in school breakfast and an improved school environment as positive results. The report contains firsthand accounts of successful alternative breakfast service model experiences from secondary school principals.
How to Use? Leverage this report to facilitate conversations with secondary schools who have not previously considered implementing a breakfast after the bell program. For discussions with elementary school principals, you can share our companion piece (pdf) which surveyed more than 200 elementary school principals and found similar positive experience with breakfast after the bell.
