!Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is between 30 and 50 percent.
1 Data are based on universe counts of schools and school districts; therefore, these figures do not have standard errors.
NOTE: Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. Student counts between 1 and 3 are displayed as 1-3 to protect student privacy. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding and because of privacy protection routines applied to universe data.
