† Not applicable. Some states do not have charter school authorization and some states do not designate magnet schools.
‡ Reporting standards not met.
1 Number of Title I-eligible schools includes those with and without schoolwide Title I programs.

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.
