3 Include attendance and social work, guidance, health, psychological services, speech pathology, audiology, and other student support services.
4 Include operations that are operated as a business and receipts from the operation are expected to fund the enterprise (e.g., school bookstores and certain after school activities).
5 U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
6 Value affected by redistribution of reported values to correct for missing data items, and/or to distribute state direct support expenditures.
