When can I find data of the percent of students by school and school district that are eligible for Free and Reduced Lunches in New Jersey? Each state seems to have their own term, such as Low Income, Economically Disadvantaged, Free and Reduced, etc. Searched the NJ Department of Education's website and came up with nothing. Thank you.

The following web site explains NJ's program and the eligibility requirements. http://www.state.nj.us/agriculture/divisions/fn/childadult/school.html

I'll check with my CRA Officer to see if he knows where to find the data you are seeking.

Try the following site. https://nces.ed.gov/globallocator/
Search for a school. Then click the link for more information. If the school participates in the free lunch program, you will see the number of students eligible. You would have to go back to the first page to see the total number of students in the school and calculate the percentage yourself.
