‡Reporting standards not met. Either the response rate is under 50 percent or there are too few cases for a reliable estimate.
NOTE: Averages reflect data reported by schools rather than state requirements. School-reported length of day may exceed state requirements, and there is a range of statistical error in reported estimates.
