HCPSS MPIA Request #2020-064

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 am requesting the count and/or percentage of FARM students data by polygon disaggregated by elementary, middle, and high school attendance.
Date Received

Responsive to this request, polygon-level data being used for boundary adjustment planning can be found on the HCPSS website outlining the boundary review process. Specifically, current and future enrollments by polygons and levels (within SY18-19 Enrollment Projections), counts of FARMs students, reading and math proficiency by polygons and levels (within FARMs Representation) and counts of race/ethnicity and English learners by polygons and levels (within Race/Ethnicity and ELL Data) is available at https://www.hcpss.org/school-planning/boundary-review/#feasibility-study under Data Downloads.
