Presently, do I have to be disadvantaged to apply to the Summer Enrichment Program?
In order to qualify for a financially disadvantaged status, we consider your tax returns from last year. An educationally disadvantaged status is based upon your secondary educational environment (eg. if your school falls below the district standards).

Where can I find information about my high school, enabling me to provide supporting documentation for my educationally disadvantaged status?
Your school district's website will be able to assist with gathering data about your high school (ie. highschool dropout rate, a high percentage of students who participate in the free lunch program, or the school district's scores on standardized exams are below state/national averages).
