† Not applicable. Membership reported as not applicable or some states do not have charter school authorization and some states do not designate magnet schools.
‡ Reporting standards not met. Data reported for less than 80 percent of schools in the state or jurisdiction.
1 Membership is the count of students enrolled on October 1 of the reported school year. Individual state total number of students is included only if the state or jurisdiction reports data for regular, special education, vocational education, and alternative education school types.
2 Total includes suppressed data due to unmet reporting standards.
3 Schools eligible for Title I schoolwide programs are also included in the count of all Title I eligible schools.
4 "Reporting states" totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia. A "reporting states" total, and not a "United States" total, is shown if data for any item in the table were not available for some, but not more than 15 percent, of all schools in the United States.
NOTE: Numbers and types of schools may differ from those published by states. See Appendix B: Common Core of Data Glossary. 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.
