* The state of Tennessee is no longer defining “economically disadvantaged” status based on students receiving free or reduced lunch. Instead, only students who are receiving Direct Certification services are now considered economically disadvantaged for purposes of data collection by the state. This change accounts for the drastic drop in % ED students statewide.
