The number and percent of students enrolled in schools and individual education programs in Maine who are ages 3 through 21 and who have disabilities requiring the provision of special education services. The count is taken as of December 1 of the school year and reflects special education enrollment on that one date. The child count is completed by school administrative units, approved state operated/state supported school and Child Development Services sites. The county totals may not add up to the state total because of children whose county is "unknown."
As of the 2011-12 school year, Maine DOE stopped tracking this indicator by county.
