HCPSS MPIA Request #2020-047

Requested Information
The Superintendent just released a School Attendance Area Adjustment Plan for the 2020-2021 school year. In that school boundary review, one of the goals is to level Free and Reduced-Price Meal (FARM) participation across schools. To ensure the proposed changes meet that goal, I'd like to request the count of FARM students by polygon, broken out by elementary, middle, and high school attendance. Thank you very much.
