Content Summary

These days, when charter schools are coming under greater and more detailed scrutiny, it is vital that they take advantage of and collect all of the data necessary for every available funding opportunity. Accurate FRL data collection is essential as it is not only used to qualify students for the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program; the data is factored into a charter school's LCAP and LCFF funding. Certain percentages of students eligible for the FRL Program also make a school eligible for various funding sources, such as those listed above, with schools with higher percentages of FRL students qualifying for more funding. Therefore, FRL data should be collected carefully, reported accurately, and updated regularly.
