This is the fourth in a series of annual reports that examines administrative error incurred during the local educational agency’s (LEA) approval process of applications for free and reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). In school year 2007/08 about 96 percent of students submitting applications for meal benefits received the correct level of meal benefits, based on information in the application files. The percent of all students with errors in the processing of their applications for meal benefits has remained relatively stable over the 4-year period, with administrative errors ranging between 3 and 4 percent.
