|Figure 13-1: Percentage distribution of public school students, by school locale and poverty level: School year 2009-10|
NOTE: Low-poverty schools are defined as public schools where 25 percent or fewer students are eligible for the free or reduced-price lunch (FRPL) program, and mid-low poverty schools are those schools where 26 percent to 50 percent of students are eligible for FRPL. Mid-high poverty schools are defined as public schools where 51 percent to 75 percent of students are eligible, and high-poverty schools are those schools where 76 percent or more students are eligible for FRPL. Schools that are missing information on FRPL or did not participate in FRPL are not shown in this figure. For more information on locale and poverty, see Appendix C – Commonly Used Measures. For more information on the Common Core of Data (CCD), see Appendix B – Guide to Sources. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
