‡ Reporting standards not met. Either there are too few cases for a reliable analysis, or the coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 50 percent or greater (i.e., the standard error is 50 percent or more of the estimate).
NOTE: Data are weighted estimates of the population. A specialist works with students and a coach works with teachers. Coaching includes observing lessons, providing feedback, and demonstrating teaching strategies.
