New guidelines for free school lunches: The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

In last month’s feature of Consider It Mapped, we discussed Free and Reduced-Price Lunches, or FRL, and the pros and cons of using this measure as a proxy for student need in North Carolina. That discussion not only explained some of the details behind a generally accepted measure for poverty, but also set a baseline against which to compare a new approach for determining eligibility for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) — the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
