(This amendment saves $2.6 million the first year and $2.6 million the second year from the general fund in the At-Risk Add-on incentive-based initiative. The new language conforms the funding eligibility to be similar to the K-3 Class Size Reduction program by requiring a school division to have a minimum of 16 percent of its total students eligible for free lunch as reported on the "Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program Eligibility" report, and submitted annually in October, by the Department of Education.)
