  • Town-by-Town Comparison of Students Identified as Low-income Using FRPL Eligibility vs. Students Identified as Low-income Using HUSKY A Eligibility

    In his budget proposal released on January 8, Governor Dannel Malloy included several changes to Connecticut's school finance system. Among the proposed changes was one to change the metric used to represent low-income students in the Education Cost Sharing (ECS) formula from eligibility for free and reduced price lunch to the more accurate metric of participation in HUSKY A (Connecticut’s children’s Medicaid program). To better understand what this proposed change would mean for school districts and their students, this spreadsheet provides a town-by-town comparison of the number of students (enrolled in October 2015) who were eligible for free and reduced price lunch, and therefore identified as low-income for the purposes of the ECS formula, versus the number of students (as of October 2015) who were eligible for HUSKY A and would have been identified as low-income for the purposes of the ECS formula if HUSKY A eligibility was the metric used to identify low-income students.
