Activity Classifications
The MSHSL receives information from the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) detailing the reported school enrollments and Free/Reduced (F/R) lunch counts by grade level. Per the Board of Director's policy, enrollments for determining Administrative Regions and Section Placements are computed as follows:
  • a school's actual 9-12 enrollment will be used
  • 40% of the reported F/R lunch counts in grades 9-12 will be subtracted from the school's actual 9-12 enrollment
  • the result will determine the schools "actual enrollment" for classification purposes

    This process will be followed in all calculations for placements during the 2007-08 and 2008-09 school years.
