† Not applicable. Some states do not have charter school authorization and some states do not designate magnet schools.
‡ Reporting standards not met. Information about whether or not a school was a magnet school was missing for 92.8 percent of schools in Florida. An indication of whether a school was eligible for Title I or Title I school wide programs was missing for 45.1 percent of schools in New Jersey.
1 Number of Title I eligible schools includes those with and without schoolwide Title I programs.
2 A reporting states total is shown if data for any item in the table were not available for some, but not more than 15 percent, of all schools in the United States. If data for an item were unavailable for more than 15 percent of schools in the United States, the total for that item is shown as "reporting standards not met."
3 DoDDS and DDESS are the Department of Defense dependents schools (overseas) and the Department of Defense dependents schools (domestic), respectively.
NOTE: Every school is assigned a school type. A school may also be included under the Charter, Magnet, and/or Title I statuses, which are independent of one another and of school type.
