(This amendment reflects savings by using a three-year average of free lunch eligibility rather than a one-year snapshot of free lunch eligibility in the calculation of the K-3 Class Size Reduction program. Required K-3 school ratios for the program range from 19 to 1 for schools with 30 percent to 45 percent of students eligible for free lunch to 14 to 1 for schools with 75 percent of more students eligible for free lunch.)
