1District poverty was determined by ranking school districts by the percentage of enrolled children ages 5-17 from families with an income below the poverty threshold, and then dividing these districts into five categories with equal proportions of the total enrollment. The low-poverty district category consists of 20 percent of students in districts with the lowest percentages of poor school-age children. Conversely, the high-poverty district category consists of the 20 percent of students in districts with the highest percentages of poor school-age children.
2 Impact Aid was designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property, or that have experienced increased expenditures due to the enrollment of federally connected children, including children living on Indian lands.
NOTE: Total and subtotals by locale include school districts with missing data on poverty level. Detail by poverty level does not add to the total or subtotals by locale because of missing data on poverty for some school districts. For more details on urban-centric locale categories, see http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/ruraled/definitions.asp. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
