NOTE: Percents are based on the 98 percent of public secondary schools that offered arts instruction in the 1999–2000 school year. The data presented in this table may differ from previously published information because missing data from the 1999–2000 surveys were imputed for analysis in this report. Arts specialists are education professionals with a teaching certificate in an arts discipline—such as music, visual arts, dance, or drama/theatre—who provide separate instruction in that discipline
