School Database Notes

There are some legitimate records that have no student counts. Some regular schools contract with other schools or agencies to provide services for some students rather than operate schools for those students directly. In order to avoid duplication those student counts are not reported for the receiving school. Conversely, in cases where all services are provided by a contracting school, no student counts are reported for the sending school. The sum of the number of teachers reported for schools associated with the agency may differ from the number of teachers reported from the agency. This is because some teachers may not be assigned to a particular school.
