*Based on direct certification which includes students who are homeless, in foster care, or participating in programs for low-income families such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP), but excludes Medicaid. City Schools provides free breakfast and lunch to all students and does not collect applications for free and reduced-priced meals, with the result that low-income status is under-reported.
