/For Fiscal Year 2014-15, school districts must continue to collect information to determine student eligibility for free or reduced price lunches per current Federal guidelines regardless of any changes in reporting requirements by the United State Department of Agriculture.
Further, the Department of Education may use school district student counts for personalized instruction as collected in the same manner as the prior fiscal year, PowerSchool or other available existing data sources as determined by the department to calculate the school district add on weightings for the personalized instruction classifications and the determination of the school districts monetary entitlement.
