• Economically Disadvantaged Status

    Every Texas public school district and open enrollment charter school either participates or does not participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) as administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Additionally, each school that is required to report student enrollment data through the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) is also required to determine and report the economic disadvantaged status of each student reported. Economic Disadvantaged is an indication of inadequate financial condition of an individual's family, as determined by family income, number of family members/dependents, participation in public assistance programs, and/or other characteristics considered relevant by federal, state, and local policy. (E1387) The eco dis status of students is important for perfomance reporting. The Eco Dis status may also qualify the student and the student's campus for additional resources and support, such as continued access to free meals without having to qualify via a school lunch application, technology grants, and more.

    Beaumont ISD uses a local household income survey, in addition to a certification file provided by the state to determine and code the economic disadvantaged status of students.
