*States may report charter schools under the category of other agencies. For example, the District of Columbia reports each charter school as a separate agency.
NOTE: Regular school districts include those that are components of supervisory unions. Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding. U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
