Due to the new school lunch program (CEP) beginning in 2014, the state no longer has free/reduced lunch numbers for all schools and districts. Instead they are using a new metric – Economically Disadvantaged – consisting of students who are eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Medicaid.
Enrollment includes all students in N.O. public schools except LA Virtual School.
Beginning in 2013, NOCCA is excluded (dropped below 50% Orleans students)
2014 does not include NOCCA or Milestone.
