†Not applicable. Some states/jurisdictions do not have charter school authorization and some states/jurisdictions do not designate magnet schools.
The total numbers of Magnet, Title I, and Title I Schoolwide schools across the 50 states and DC are not shown due to missing data for California in SY 2021–22.
1Operating schools 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 school is eligible for Title I funds if its poverty percentage is as high as the LEA's poverty percentage or, at the LEA's discretion, at least 35 percent. A schoolwide Title I eligible school has a percentage of low-income students that is at least 40 percent.
3U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
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. 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.
