If you were on last month’s school breakfast Webinar Wednesday event (Breakfast in the Classroom Stakeholder Engagement: How to Win Friends and Influence People) you won’t want to miss the next webinar on the schedule. Mark your calendar for Wednesday, October 14, and join us for Operating a Breakfast in the Classroom Program: Everything You Want to Know about Implementation at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
Participation in this webinar is worth 1 CEU in the Key Area of Administration Topic: 3200 Program Management, Sub-topic: 3220 Standardized Operating Procedures. We’ll walk through the details of operations for BIC, and hear from school nutrition professionals who are operating the program—menu ideas, equipment suggestions, counting and claiming strategies, and new school nutrition technology. In last month’s webinar we discussed strategies for winning over stakeholders to create a successful and sustainable breakfast-in-the-classroom program, and this webinar will build on that foundation; if you’re ready to “take the next step” and begin planning your BIC operations, register now! The final 20 minutes will be reserved for a question-and-answer session with our panel of SN professionals, so come prepared with your BIC questions.
FRAC also has two upcoming Breakfast Matters webinars to consider:

- Thursday, November 12, 2015: Principal Champions for Breakfast After the Bell in Secondary Schools (3 p.m. ET) is a joint presentation from FRAC and the National Association of Secondary School Principals; we’ll hear highlights from their upcoming joint report, which captures the experiences of over 100 secondary school principals who have implemented an alternative breakfast service model. Topics will include stakeholder engagement, planning and implementation, and the academic benefits of school breakfast.
