Part 29. Programs For Disadvantaged Pupils. Chapter 1. Educationally Disadvantaged Youth Programs. Article 1. General Provisions
It is the intent of the Legislature to provide quality educational opportunities for all children in the public schools. The Legislature recognizes that a wide variety of factors such as low family income, pupil transiency rates, and large numbers of homes where a primary language other than English is spoken have a direct impact on a child's success in school and personal development, and require that different levels of financial assistance be provided districts in order to assure a quality level of education for all pupils.
