Louisiana operates several different preschool programs through the public school system, including LA4 and programs funded through 8(g) grants and Title I funds. Some parishes also offer Head Start programs in public schools.
For parish-level data, data for Recovery School District schools, charter schools, lab schools and city districts are reflected in the parish-level data of the parish in which the school is located. Data for Louisiana School for the Deaf and Louisiana Special Education Center are not included in parish-level data, but are reflected in the statewide totals.
Data reflect October total enrollment counts, except for SY 2005 data, which reflect February 2006 counts.
