1 Enrollment columns for White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native provide the percentage of students who are enrolled in a school where students in the specified race or ethnicity group make up one of the following: 50 percent or more of that school's enrollment, 50–75 percent of that school's enrollment, or more than 75 percent of that school's enrollment. For example, 21 percent of Hispanic students in public elementary and secondary schools attend a school where 50 percent or more of the students are White, 15 percent attend a school where 50–75 percent of the students are White, and 6 percent attend a school where more than 75 percent of the students are White. The "All other enrollment" column provides the percentage of students enrolled in schools with racial/ethnic enrollment compositions other than 50 percent or more White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Pacific Islander, or American Indian/Alaska Native.
2 Total includes other racial/ethnic groups not shown separately in the table and students whose racial/ethnic group was not reported.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
