Note: Privacy laws dictate that for fewer than 10 students, the specific number and percentage should not be given. Therefore, if the number is less than 10 students, schools should use an asterisk (*) to represent less than 10 students and the percentage. An * indicates that the student population number and percentage is too small to report the value. The percentage and number of students are not shown if the percentage is greater than 95 percent (>95) or less than 5 percent (<5).
