1 Based on the school year the teacher started teaching at the current school. Caution should be used in comparing to the 2007–08 survey results because 2007–08 teachers were instructed, "If you had a break in service of one year or more, please report the year that you returned to this school," whereas no such instruction was given in the 2011–12 survey.
NOTE: Teachers include both full-time and part-time teachers. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
