Advantage Academy is providing free breakfast and lunch to all Advantage Academy students for the 2021-2022 school year, but is still required to collect the socioeconomic status of EACH student as a performance indicator for student achievement (TEC 39 for Texas state requirements and ESEA sections 1111 and 1116 for U.S. Department of Education requirements) and for use in disbursement of federal funds (ESEA section 1113).
It is very important that every Advantage Academy family complete this socioeconomic form in order for schools to receive Title I and State Compensatory Education funding. This funding will directly benefit your child's school. Title I and State Compensatory Education funding can be used to hire personnel, provide tutoring services, order technology, and provide professional development for teachers. We want to continue to provide these necessary learning supports, but without your information and assistance, our funding would be limited.
The information you provide is confidential. Even if you don't think your income level qualifies to help the school, we wish to assure you that having the information coded properly in our system does help. Your income information and confidential information is not shared with anyone as we code privately within our school systems.
Please take the time to complete and submit this form for your Advantage Academy family.
