† Not applicable. Some states/jurisdictions do not have charter school authorization and some states/jurisdictions do not designate magnet schools.
1Operating schools/agencies include all those providing services as of the start of the reported school year.
2Schools eligible for Title I schoolwide programs are also included in the count of all Title I eligible schools. A Title I eligible school is one in which the percentage of children from low-income families is at least 35 percent of children from low-income families served by the LEA as a whole. A schoolwide Title I eligible school has a percentage of low-income students that is at least 40 percent. For the complete definitions, refer to the glossary available in the CCD Reference Library, document #7 (https://nces.ed.gov/ccd/reference_library.asp).
3A reporting state's 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: Every school is assigned a school type based on its instructional emphasis; numbers and types of schools may differ from those published by states. For the complete definitions, refer to the glossary in the CCD Reference Library, document #7 (https://nces.ed.gov/ccd/reference_library.asp). 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.
