New Learning Assistance Program funding is provided to high poverty high schools, defined as a high school where over 50 percent of the students are eligible for free and reduced price lunch. The schools must spend the funds on allowable activities under RCW 28A.165.035. These may include extended learning time and wrap-around services for students; time for staff to develop and implement school-wide graduation strategies; implementation of school-wide efforts to improve attendance and reduce suspensions; and matching of students with mentors and internships.
