Sec. 8.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 469.176, subdivision 2, is amended to read:


Subd. 2.

Excess increments.

(a) The authority shall annually determine the amount of
excess increments for a district, if any. This determination must be based on the tax increment
financing plan in effect on December 31 of the year and the increments and other revenues
received as of December 31 of the year. The authority must spend or return the excess
increments under paragraph (c) within nine months after the end of the year.

(b) For purposes of this subdivision, "excess increments" equals the excess of:

(1) total increments collected from the district since its certification, reduced by any
excess increments paid under paragraph (c), clause (4), for a prior year, over

(2) the total costs authorized by the tax increment financing plan to be paid with
increments from the district, reduced, but not below zero, by the sum of:

(i) the amounts of those authorized costs that have been paid from sources other than
tax increments from the district;

(ii) revenues, other than tax increments from the district, that are dedicated for or
otherwise required to be used to pay those authorized costs and that the authority has received
and that are not included in item (i);

(iii) the amount of principal and interest obligations due on outstanding bonds after
December 31 of the year and not prepaid under paragraph (c) in a prior year; and

(iv) increased by the sum of the transfers of increments made under section 469.1763,
subdivision 6
, to reduce deficits in other districts made by December 31 of the year.

(c) The authority shall use excess increment only to do one or more of the following:

(1) prepay any outstanding bonds;

(2) discharge the pledge of tax increment for any outstanding bonds;

(3) pay into an escrow account dedicated to the payment of any outstanding bonds; or

(4) return the excess amount to the county auditor who shall distribute the excess amount
to the city or town, county, and school district in which the tax increment financing district
is located in direct proportion to their respective local tax rates.

(d) For purposes of a district for which the request for certification was made prior to
August 1, 1979, excess increments equal the amount of increments on hand on December
31, less the principal and interest obligations due on outstanding bonds or advances,
qualifying under subdivision 1c, clauses (1), (2), (4), and (5), after December 31 of the year
and not prepaid under paragraph (c).

(e) The county auditor mustnew text begin, prior to February 1 of each year,new text end report to the commissioner
of education the amount of any excess tax increment distributed to a school district deleted text beginwithin
30 days of the distribution

(f) For purposes of this subdivision, "outstanding bonds" means bonds which are secured
by increments from the district.

(g) The state auditor may exempt an authority from reporting the amounts calculated
under this subdivision for a calendar year, if the authority certifies to the auditor in its report
that the total amount authorized by the tax increment plan to be paid with increments from
the district exceeds the sum of the total increments collected for the district for all years by
20 percent.

new text begin (a) The legislature finds that the negative effects of
screen overuse and misuse impact the healthy development of young people. Research
supports a growing amount of evidence on the effects of screen overuse and misuse on the
following dimensions of well-being:
new text end

new text begin (1) physically, including sleep disturbances, eye strain, headaches, obesity, back and
neck pain, and physiological changes in the brain;
new text end

new text begin (2) mentally, including depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and addictive tendencies;

new text begin (3) socially, including loneliness, social upward mobility comparison, nomophobia,
sexting, cyberbullying, unfiltered access to pornography, and diminished social and
interpersonal skills;
new text end

new text begin (4) emotionally, including emotional dysregulation, decreased ability to express empathy,
and lowered self-esteem; and
new text end

new text begin (5) cognitive distraction, including diminished academic performance, decreased working
memory, decrease in cognitive capacity and functioning, and increase in ADHD.
new text end

new text begin (b) The effects of screen overuse and misuse impact every generation, gender, race, and
social class. Technology poses a greater detriment to underserved populations on social
mobility comparisons, academic achievement, distraction by devices in the learning
environment, compromised use of technology as a learning tool, reduced social and emotional
learning skills, and lower levels of learning motivation and self-confidence.
new text end

new text begin (c) The negative effects of social media on young people include sleep disruption,
increased cyberbullying and rumor spreading, increased depression and anxiety, declines
in life satisfaction, loss of interest in daily activities with peers, increased tendency to send
sexualized images, suicidal ideation, self-harming, and obesity.

new text begin Special education services and supports. new text end

new text begin (a) A school district or charter school
that serves one or more students with disabilities must invite the parents of a student with
a disability to a meeting of each individualized education program (IEP) team as soon as
practicable but no later than December 1, 2021, to determine whether special education
services and supports are necessary to address lack of progress on IEP goals or in the general
education curriculum or loss of learning or skills due to disruptions related to the COVID-19
pandemic. The services and supports may include but are not limited to extended school
year services, additional IEP services, compensatory services, or other appropriate services.
This meeting may occur in an annual or other regularly scheduled IEP meeting. If the IEP
team determines that the services and supports are necessary, the team shall determine what
services and supports are appropriate for the student and when and how those services
should be provided, in accordance with relevant guidance from the Minnesota Department
of Education and the United States Department of Education. The services and supports
must be included in the IEP of the student. A district or charter school must report to the
commissioner, in the form and manner determined by the commissioner, the services and
supports provided to students with disabilities under this section, including the cost of
providing the services.

new text begin (b) In determining whether a student is eligible for services and supports described in
paragraph (a), and what services and supports are appropriate for the student, the IEP team
must consider, in conjunction with any other considerations advised by guidance from the

new text begin (5) other significant influences on the student's ability to participate in and benefit from
instruction related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including family loss, changed family
circumstances, other trauma, and illness; and
new text end

new text begin (6) the types of services and supports that would benefit the student and improve the
student's ability to benefit from school, including academic supports, behavioral supports,
mental health supports, related services, and other services and supports.
new text end

new text begin (c) When considering how and when the services and supports described in paragraph
(a) should be provided, the IEP team must take into account the timing and delivery method
most appropriate for the student, such as time of day, day of the week, or time of year, and
the availability of other services accessible to the student to address learning loss. The IEP
team may determine that providers in addition to school district or charter school staff are
most appropriate to provide the services and supports described in paragraph (a).
new text end

new text begin (d) A school district or charter school must make available the services and supports
included in an IEP, as described in paragraph (a), until the IEP team determines that services
and supports are no longer necessary to address lack of progress on IEP goals or in the
general education curriculum or loss of learning or skills due to disruptions related to the
COVID-19 pandemic.

ACCOUNTING.

Subdivision 1.

School deleted text beginlunch aid computationdeleted text endnew text begin meals policiesnew text end.

new text begin (a) Each Minnesota
participant in the national school lunch program must adopt and post to its website, or the
website of the organization where the meal is served, a school meals policy.
new text end

new text begin (b) The policy must be in writing and clearly communicate student meal charges when
payment cannot be collected at the point of service. The policy must be reasonable and
well-defined and maintain the dignity of students by prohibiting lunch shaming or otherwise
ostracizing the student.
new text end

new text begin (c) The policy must address whether the participant uses a collections agency to collect
unpaid school meals debt.
new text end

new text begin (d) The policy must ensure that once a participant has placed a meal on a tray or otherwise
served the meal to a student, the meal may not be subsequently withdrawn from the student
by the cashier or other school official, whether or not the student has an outstanding meals
balance.
new text end

new text begin (e) The policy must ensure that a student who has been determined eligible for free and
reduced-price lunch must always be served a reimbursable meal even if the student has an
outstanding debt.
new text end

new text begin (f) If a school contracts with a third party for its meal services, it must provide the vendor
with its school meals policy. Any contract between the school and a third-party provider
entered into or modified after July 1, 2021, must ensure that the third-party provider adheres
to the participant's school meals policy.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 1a. new text end

new text begin School lunch aid amounts. new text end

Each school year, the state must pay participants
in the national school lunch program the amount of 12.5 cents for each full paid and free
student lunch and 52.5 cents for each reduced-price lunch served to students.

Subd. 2.

Application.

A school district, charter school, nonpublic school, or other
participant in the national school lunch program shall apply to the department for this
payment on forms provided by the department.

Subd. 2a.

Federal child and adult care food program; criteria and notice.

The
commissioner must post on the department's website eligibility criteria and application
information for nonprofit organizations interested in applying to the commissioner for
approval as a multisite sponsoring organization under the federal child and adult care food
program. The posted criteria and information must inform interested nonprofit organizations
about:

(1) the criteria the commissioner uses to approve or disapprove an application, including
how an applicant demonstrates financial viability for the Minnesota program, among other
criteria;

(2) the commissioner's process and time line for notifying an applicant when its
application is approved or disapproved and, if the application is disapproved, the explanation
the commissioner provides to the applicant; and

(3) any appeal or other recourse available to a disapproved applicant.

Subd. 3.

School food service fund.

(a) The expenses described in this subdivision must
be recorded as provided in this subdivision.

(b) In each district, the expenses for a school food service program for pupils must be
attributed to a school food service fund. Under a food service program, the school food
service may prepare or serve milk, meals, or snacks in connection with school or community
service activities.

(c) Revenues and expenditures for food service activities must be recorded in the food
service fund. The costs of processing applications, accounting for meals, preparing and
serving food, providing kitchen custodial services, and other expenses involving the preparing
of meals or the kitchen section of the lunchroom may be charged to the food service fund
or to the general fund of the district. The costs of lunchroom supervision, lunchroom custodial
services, lunchroom utilities, and other administrative costs of the food service program
must be charged to the general fund.

That portion of superintendent and fiscal manager costs that can be documented as
attributable to the food service program may be charged to the food service fund provided
that the school district does not employ or contract with a food service director or other
individual who manages the food service program, or food service management company.
If the cost of the superintendent or fiscal manager is charged to the food service fund, the
charge must be at a wage rate not to exceed the statewide average for food service directors
as determined by the department.

(d) Capital expenditures for the purchase of food service equipment must be made from
the general fund and not the food service fund, unless the restricted balance in the food
service fund at the end of the last fiscal year is greater than the cost of the equipment to be
purchased.

(e) If the condition set out in paragraph (d) applies, the equipment may be purchased
from the food service fund.

(f) If a deficit in the food service fund exists at the end of a fiscal year, and the deficit
is not eliminated by revenues from food service operations in the next fiscal year, then the
deficit must be eliminated by a permanent fund transfer from the general fund at the end of
that second fiscal year. However, if a district contracts with a food service management
company during the period in which the deficit has accrued, the deficit must be eliminated
by a payment from the food service management company.

(g) Notwithstanding paragraph (f), a district may incur a deficit in the food service fund
for up to three years without making the permanent transfer if the district submits to the
commissioner by January 1 of the second fiscal year a plan for eliminating that deficit at
the end of the third fiscal year.

(h) If a surplus in the food service fund exists at the end of a fiscal year for three
successive years, a district may recode for that fiscal year the costs of lunchroom supervision,
lunchroom custodial services, lunchroom utilities, and other administrative costs of the food
service program charged to the general fund according to paragraph (c) and charge those
costs to the food service fund in a total amount not to exceed the amount of surplus in the
food service fund.

not limited to dumping meals, withdrawing a meal that has been served, announcing or
listing students' names publicly, or affixing stickers, stamps, or pins. The participant must
not impose any other restriction prohibited under section 123B.37 due to unpaid student
meal balances. The participant must not limit a student's participation in any school activities,
graduation ceremonies, field trips, athletics, activity clubs, or other extracurricular activities
or access to materials, technology, or other items provided to students due to an unpaid
student meal balance.
new text end

new text begin (b) If the commissioner or the commissioner's designee determines a participant has
violated the requirement to provide meals to participating students in a respectful manner,
the commissioner or the commissioner's designee must send a letter of noncompliance to
the participant. The participant is required to respond and, if applicable, remedy the practice
within 60 days.

Sec. 2. new text beginSCHOOL NUTRITION FORMULAS ADJUSTED.
new text end

new text begin (a) Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, for school meals served during the
2020-2021 school year, the commissioner of education may adjust the appropriations under
Laws 2020, chapter 116, article 6, sections 20, 21, and 22, as amended by this act, as specified
in paragraph (b).
new text end

new text begin (b) On June 30, 2021, the commissioner must subtract the amount actually paid to
participants for the 2020-2021 school year under Laws 2020, chapter 116, article 6, sections
20, 21, and 22, as amended by this act, from the total appropriations for each program. The
