* School District values based on schools that reported lunch assistance data

The percentage of Life Academy students on free and reduced lunch assistance (99.1%) is significantly higher than the state average of 58.5%. This may indicate that the area has a higher level of poverty than the state average.

Students at a participating school may purchase a meal through the National School Lunch Program. Families with incomes between 130% and 185% of the federal poverty level are eligible for reduced price meals. Schools may not charge more than 40¢ for reduced-price lunches, nor more than 30¢ for reduced-price breakfasts. Students from families with incomes at or below 130% of the federal poverty level are eligible for free meals.
