School Milk Program Survey

Before starting your school’s Milk Program determine the interest of your school community. Here’s a sample survey that can be sent home to parents:

Pre-Payment Milk Systems

Description of pre-payment milk systems – milk tickets and monthly milk order: download.

Milk ticket order form

Milk tickets are often used by schools. Students pay for their milk in advance and in return receive a sheet of milk tickets redeemable during the lunch hour whenever they choose to drink milk.

Monthly Milk Pre-Payment Order Form

Instead of using milk tickets or cards, your school may wish to use a monthly milk pre-payment order form. This monthly form allows students and parents to select which days of the month they would like to order white or chocolate milk, and add up the total cost and payment required to be submitted to the school. The form also allows coordinators to personalize fields for: month and year, price of milk, return form, and payment date. The monthly calendar on the form is also modifiable. It allows coordinators to cross out (by typing an “X” ) the squares of the week at the beginning and end of the month that are from the previous and following months, along with any holidays or no school days. For more information on how to use this type of pre-payment system click here.

Class lists

For schools using a monthly milk schedule instead of milk tickets or cards, milk purchases can be tracked using a class list. Lists are helpful to calculate how much milk to purchase for the month, and can be used to deliver milk to students who eat in their classrooms.

There are two file formats available:

  1. PDF – to be printed and completed manually.
  2. Excel – download and save this file to your computer. This format can be completed electronically. It will add up the total number of a classroom’s white and chocolate milk for each day of the school week, as well as add up the total number of white and chocolate milk for the month. Multiple class lists can be made and saved for repeat purchase
