*Grade span is the range of grade levels for which a school has reported enrollment. It may not represent all grade levels that a school supports. For instance, a small school may serve grades K–6, but if no kindergartners were enrolled in 2013–14, the grade span would be 1–6.

†Represents schools with various grade spans that are uncommon (fewer than 10 schools with those particular grade spans).

††Includes juvenile hall/court, county community, opportunity, California Education Authority, special education, preschool (with K-12 enrollment), district office, and state special schools.

§Nonpublic nonsectarian schools (NPSs) are CDE-certified private, nonsectarian schools that enroll individuals with exceptional needs that the district cannot provide services for.
