# Rounds to zero.
1 Full-time equivalent (FTE) is the amount of time required to perform an assignment stated as a proportion of a full-time position. It is computed by dividing the amount of time employed by the amount of time normally required for a full-time position. FTE is not a head count; for example, 2 half-time employees represent 1 FTE.
2 LEA stands for "Local Education Agency" (a.k.a. "school district").
3 Includes adminstrative and student support staff, such as data processing, health, and transportation.
4 Totals do not include districts in which data were not available. Instructional support staff data were missing for two districts. Therefore, the percentage distribution of FTE staffing types for the 100 largest school districts may be affected.
NOTE: Data include all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, four outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands), the Bureau of Indian Education, and the Department of Defense dependents schools (overseas and domestic). Detail may not sum to total because of rounding.
