† Not applicable. Some states/jurisdictions do not have charter school authorization and some states/jurisdictions do not designate magnet schools.
‡ Reporting standards not met. Data reported for less than 80 percent of schools in the state or jurisdiction.
1 Total number of operating schools excludes schools also reported by the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE). The number of operating schools shared with the BIE include two in Arizona, one in Michigan, and eight in North Dakota.
2 Massachusetts has magnet schools but was not able to provide data that indicate school's magnet status. Total includes suppressed data due to unmet reporting standards.
3 Schools eligible for Title I schoolwide programs are also included in the count of all Title I eligible schools. A Title I eligible school is one in which the percentage of children from low-income families is at least 35 percent of children from low-income families served by the LEA as a whole. A schoolwide Title I eligible school has a percentage of low-income students that is at least 40 percent. For the complete definitions, see Appendix B: Common Core of Data Glossary.
4 A reporting states total is shown if data for any item in the table were not available for some, but not more than 15 percent, of all schools in the United States.
5 DoDDS and DDESS are the Department of Defense dependents schools (overseas) and the Department of Defense dependents schools (domestic), respectively.
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. See Appendix B: Common Core of Data Glossary. 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.
