2019 Winter Release – School Student Counts Reported Data

The Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) 2019 –20 School Student Counts prepopulated Student Enrollment and Eligible Low-Income Students (Ages 5-17) data may not reflect accurate data. To address any prepopulated data concerns, local educational agencies may run the 2019 –20 CALPADS report 1.17 using the Age Eligibility filter for Title I (5 to 17 year olds only) to obtain total (student) enrollment and the unduplicated Eligible Free/Reduced Meal counts. Please use the third column from the left for the Total (student) Enrollment data and the third column from the right (Unduplicated Eligible Free/Reduced Meal Counts) for the Eligible Low-Income Students (Ages 5-17) data.
