Family Occupation and Education Index (FOEI)

The FOEI is a school-level index of educational disadvantage related to socio-economic background. FOEI values range from 0 to approximately 300, with higher FOEI scores indicating higher levels of need (i.e. lower socio-economic status). FOEI is used as the basis of the equity loading for socio-economic background in the Department’s new Resource Allocation Model.
