Carried this bill this morning. It passed the Committee of the Whole. It changes the way At-Risk money is calculated. The bill creates linear
transition for districts between 35 to 50 percent free and reduced lunch students. Current law stair steps the 40% and 50% levels making a situation in some districts where 1 or 2 kids could affect a half million dollars to a district. This is superior policy and is moving to the Senate.
