Free/Reduced Lunch and January Membership Data – MOSIS/Core Data Screen 15 and 16

Date:  March 23, 2009

Please make sure the free and reduced lunch information reported on MOSIS and populated on Core Data Screen 15 and the January membership data populated on Screen 16 of the February cycle is accurate.  We will calculate the estimated 2009-2010 Title I allocation for LEAs serving an area with a total population of less than 20,000 using the alternative data method approved by the State Board of Education.  Since the Federal Programs’ headcount free/reduced lunch information on Screen 15 of the Core Data collection system and the January membership count are used as part of the alternative data, I would encourage districts to make sure their data is correct.  

The September membership data populated on Screen 16 which is collected in the October cycle is used in your allocation calculation for other federal programs.  I would encourage districts to make sure this data is correct.

On April 1, 2009 we will copy the data from these screens to calculate federal program allocations.  Errors on reporting this data could result in a decrease in your federal programs’ allocations.  If you are having difficulty making these changes before the end of March, please contact our office immediately.  We will try to assist you to get accurate data submitted.
