|Figure 27-2: Percentage distribution of public schools, by school level and school poverty level: School year 2008-09|
NOTE: Estimates are for public schools in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. High-poverty schools are defined as public schools where more than 75 percent of the students are eligible for the free or reduced-price lunch (FRPL) program, and mid-high poverty schools are those schools where 51 to 75 percent of students are eligible. Low-poverty schools are defined as public schools where 25 percent or fewer students are eligible for FRPL, and mid-low poverty schools are those schools where 26 to 50 percent of students are eligible for FRPL.
