Counts represent the number of students enrolled in programs at the beginning of the school year (in September or as close as possible thereafter). All numbers, including the totals, have been randomly rounded; therefore, totals may not add up to the sum of all categories due to rounding. Calculations were done using unrounded data. Data are subject to revision.
