Professional Standards for School Nutrition Program Employees
In 2015, the USDA updated the professional standards regarding school food workers and nutrition program managers as part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA). Directors, managers, and both full-time and part-time staff must meet minimum standards of training or continuing education each year... and the minimum requirements increased again for the 2016-2017 school year.
Providing the training is a significant task, but it's made even more difficult... because each School Food Authority (and State school nutrition office) is responsible for maintaining accurate training records for its managers and employees and making sure that each worker meets or exceeds the minimum training standard every year.
SureTray Simplifies Training Compliance
If you're someone who maintains School Nutrition Program training records at an SFA or State office, the person who makes sure your staff are compliant with the USDA rules, SureTray is an inexpensive, cloud-based software product that makes your life much easier.
SureTray calculates the training requirements for all eligible SFA managers and staff and shows you at a glance how close you are to compliance at each of your staffing locations. The simple point-and-click interface means easy data entry for training sessions, and even provides a way for someone working a sign-in desk to record staff attendance electronically (farewell to paper sign-in sheets). SureTray allows you to quickly browse and sort your personnel and training records in several different ways, and automatically generates compliance reports with the click of a mouse or the touch of a finger. And because it's hosted securely in the cloud, there's nothing you need to buy or maintain in order to use SureTray... it's just an inexpensive annual subscription.
SureTray replaces reams of paper records, spreadsheets, and databases and gives you a single, highly secure, online system that you can use from any computer or internet-enabled tablet.
