(This amendment reflects $5.2 million each year in general fund savings by using a three-year average for free lunch eligibility rather than using a single year's data for eligibility in the funding calculation of the K-3 Class Size Reduction program. The program includes six eligibility tiers that range from a low of at least 30 percent but less than 45 percent up to a high level of 75 percent or more of students eligible for free lunch.)
