Poverty Level by School District

To find out which school districts have 30% or more of their students eligible for free and reduced priced meals, click on the first letter for the school district name.   The school districts that are shaded have a 30% or greater poverty level.  A Pre-K Counts applicant that plans to enroll children from these school district areas is in priority 1. A Pre-K Counts applicant that plans to enroll children from the  school districts that are not shaded are priority 2 if they plan to enroll primarily children at-risk.  Other eligible entities may apply if they meet the program standards, even if they do not plan to target enrollment to children at-risk.
