# Rounds to zero.
1Reporting states totals exclude states for which data were missing for 20 percent or more of the schools or districts.
2Migrant students include those who were enrolled at any time during the previous (2000–01) regular school year. They are reported for each school in which they enrolled; because this is a duplicated count, the table does not show migrants as a percentage of all students.
3American Samoa did not report students eligible for reduced-price meals. See technical notes.
4Data were missing for more than 20 percent of schools or districts.
NOTE: IEP is the acronym for individualized education program. ELL is the acronym for English language learner. Some data items were more likely to be missing from charter schools than from other schools. Free lunch data were missing for 625 of 2,348 charter schools, and migrant student data were missing for 682. Data on ELL students were missing for 110 of the total 989 charter school districts. Percentages are based on schools and agencies reporting. Detail may not sum to total because of rounding. U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
