Number: The number of public school students that have been identified as having limited proficiency in the English language.
Percent: The number of public school students that have been identified as having limited proficiency in the English language per 100 students enrolled in public school.
As defined by Title VII, Part E, Section 7501(8) of
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Public Law 103-382), a
student is considered to lack proficiency in English if the student has
sufficient difficulty speaking, reading, writing, or understanding the
English language and whose difficulties may deny such individual the
opportunity to learn successfully in classrooms where the language of
instruction is English or to participate fully in our society.

Data for Recovery School District schools, charter schools and city district schools are reflected in the parish-level data of the parish in which the school is located. Data for the following schools and school systems are not included in parish-level data, but is reflected in the statewide totals: Special School Districts #1 and #2, Louisiana School For Math, Science & the Arts, Louisiana School for the Deaf, Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired, Louisiana Special Education Center, and La Office of Juvenile Justice. For some years' data, the statewide total is slightly higher than the sum of the district-level data because data for districts that are no longer operational are not reported individually, but are reflected in the statewide total.
Data reflect October enrollment counts, except for SY 2005 data, which reflect February 2006 counts.
NA indicates that a school district was either not operational in this timeframe or that it did not report data to the Louisiana Department of Education at that time.
