*Table includes 28 Department of Defense and 24 BIA school districts that are technically federally operated agencies; this is in order to report data for these agencies in the table.
NOTE: For states that did not provide a grade span, grade span was determined by the highest and lowest grades served among all schools associated with the district. "Other" includes all grade configurations not reported in the specified categories and includes ungraded districts. Table excludes 357 regular school districts for which no students were reported in membership. U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Percentages are rounded to the nearest tenth and may not add to 100. Percentages of less than 0.05 are rounded to 0.0.
