NOTE: Data are for the 50 states and the District of Columbia only. Totals include imputations for states for which data were unavailable. Prior to 2019, “school-age children” included in this figure were students ages 6 to 21. Due to changes in reporting requirements in the fall 2019 data collection, the number of school-age students served may include some 5-year-olds enrolled in kindergarten. Starting in the fall 2020 data collection, school-age children include 6- to 21-year-olds and 5-year-olds enrolled in kindergarten. Students in other school environments (separate schools for students with disabilities, separate residential facilities, parentally placed in regular private schools, homebound or hospital placement, and correctional facilities) are excluded from this figure. Figures are plotted based on unrounded data.
