*The striking decrease in the percentage of MNPS students considered economically disadvantaged over the past several years is due to a new state definition. Economically disadvantaged now refers only to students who are directly certified, meaning their families receive certain government assistance. In prior years, this percentage was consistently at or above 70% and included students who were eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. The share of students who are Limited English Proficient (LEP) continues to increase. While just seven percent of students were LEP in 2006-2007, nearly a quarter, 22 percent, of students are LEP in 2017-2018. (2017 Nashville Chamber of Commerce Education Report Card)
