Numbers and Types of Public Elementary and Secondary Schools from the Common Core of Data: School Year 2010-11. First Look. NCES 2012-325
Keaton, Patrick
National Center for Education Statistics
This report presents findings on the numbers and types of public elementary and secondary schools in the United States and other jurisdictions in the 2010-11 school year, using data from the Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey of the Common Core of Data (CCD) survey system. The CCD is an annual collection of data that are reported by state education agencies (SEAs) to the National Center for Education Statistics through the U.S. Department of Education's ED"Facts" collection system. The purpose of this report is to introduce new data through the presentation of tables containing descriptive information; therefore, the selected findings chosen for this report demonstrate the range of information available when using the CCD. The selected findings do not represent a complete review of all observed differences in the data and are not meant to emphasize any particular issue. The Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey can be used to report the numbers and types of schools. The information includes a school's status (new, continuing, closed, etc.), and whether it is a charter school, magnet school, and/or Title I school. The survey can also be used to report the numbers of students and the school's "locale type," that is, whether it is in a city, suburban, town, or rural area. Appended are: (1) Methodology and Technical Notes; and (2) Common Core of Data Glossary. (Contains 7 tables and 3 footnotes.)
