The purpose of this quantitative descriptive study was to explore the relationship between poverty, school factors, and student achievement. Using longitudinal data, students enrolled in Free and Reduced-priced Meals System (FARMS) services every year between kindergarten and Grade 5 were defined as persistently impacted by poverty, while students who received FARMS services in some years but not every year between kindergarten and Grade 5 were considered transitorily impacted by poverty.
