  How is Verification conducted?
 As of Oct. 1, the total number of approved paper
  household applications submitted for the
  current school year are counted
 Required sampling method is determined
 Select required percentage based on sample
  method - but no more (cannot verify 100% of
  applications)
 Select applications to be verified “for cause” are
  “in addition” to the required sampling number.

                                                   5
