FY23 or SY22-23 was the first year of implementation for two new additional funding weights in the Uniform per Student Funding Formula (UPSFF) for schools where 40% and 70% or more of the student population is designated as at risk of academic failure. In SY22-23, 173 schools (out of 239 schools with eligible students) had 40% or more of their students designated as at risk, while 89 schools had 70% or more of their students designated as at risk. See below for those specific schools and where they are located, as well as the share of at risk enrollment per school.
