The methodology proposed by the panel provides a district with estimates that it can use to fulfill other data requirements. Box 5-13 describes some of these uses. Benchmarked eligibility percentages, for example, can be used in place of aggregate certification percentages for purposes of ranking schools based on the percentages of economically disadvan-taged children. As with Provisions 2 and 3 and the Community Eligibility Option (CEO), for purposes of Title I reporting of progress of students toward meeting education goals by subgroup, all students attending an AEO school can be classified as economically disadvantaged. Other needs for data concerning the status of economically disadvantaged children can similarly be met with one of these two approaches.
