Note about PEBT
Posted on 07/20/2020

The district is aware that some Calhoun County ISD families have received notices regarding a denial for Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (PEBT) benefits. Some families reported that their letter cites “no record of their student being enrolled in the district during 2019-2020.”

Calhoun County ISD is reaching out to The Department of Health and Human Services to better understand how the agency pulls student enrollment information for the PEBT program and ensure they have accurate information.

It is important to understand that PEBT is not a Calhoun County ISD program, and we do not have access to any PEBT information beyond the application link. However, the district will reach out to The Department of Health and Human Services on behalf of our families and help in any way that we can.

In the meantime, those wishing to appeal their application denial, can follow the process outlined in their letter.
