OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Nearly 90 percent of Oklahoma City School District students have family income low enough to qualify them for free or reduced-price meals.
A total of 88 percent of the district's students were eligible for the National School Lunch program in October. Statewide the number is 56.3 percent.
In order to qualify for a free lunch a student must come from a family making no more than 130 percent of the poverty level. For a family of four that is currently $27,560.
Students may qualify for a reduced-price meal if their families make no more than 185 percent of the poverty level or $39,220.
In Tulsa, 76.9 percent of students qualified for free or reduced-price meals in 2008 - down from 82.9 percent in 2007.
