									                               EIP Class Size and 3% Rule

3% RULE EIP placement is for those elementary students who are “meeting” standards on
the CRCT for reading and/or math but who continue to perform below grade level. In an
effort to provide flexibility in the EIP Placement criteria, systems may identify up to 3% of
elementary students at the system, school, or grade level.
