KINGSTON, Okla. -- The start of a new school year in Oklahoma means enrolling your child, but the paperwork often does not stop there. Another important form for a lot of schools is the household income paperwork.

Kingston is just one of many who keep track of family income data.
Administrators say they are not trying to pry into your personal affairs, but income questionnaires are one of many tools they can use to get federal grant money to provide free or reduced lunches to kids who need them.

"It's so important that everybody fills out this whether or not you qualify -- even if you know you don't qualify. It's important that we have it on record. This way when we have a site review, we're able to pull up the information," said Kingston Superintendent Jay McAdams.

Students in Kingston resumed classes last week.
