Understanding the data

The benchmark displays the number of preschool students enrolled in the district. 

Because a school year includes two calendar years, such as 2014-2015, the school year on the benchmark chart is identified by the second calendar year. For example, the 2014-2015 school year is identified as 2015 on the chart.​​

The data may be viewed by district, region, school, and race. It may be further filtered by gender, English Language Learner status, free and reduced lunch status, special education status, and race.


Count of preschool students enrolled each year.
