Note: The 2000-01 ABCs results in this chart are prior to State Board of Education review.

1. 1996-97 was the first year of implementation of the ABCs; only K-8 schools were included in the model for this year.

2. 1997-98 was the first year of implementation of the ABCs in high schools. (Schools whose grades spanned K-12 were included in statistical summaries for both K-8 and high schools, so there is duplication in these counts.)

3. The comprehensive ABCs model has been applied since 1998-99; there is no duplication in these counts.

4. This category was No Recognition in 1996-97, Adequate Performance in 1997-98, and No Recognition in 1998-99, 1999-2000 and 2000-2001.

5. Total ABCs Schools is the total number of schools participating in the ABCs for a given year; this total does not reflect the sum of the column; Schools of Excellence and Schools of Distinction are not exclusive categories and may include schools that appear in other categories.

Caution: Comparisons across years should be made with the above footnotes in mind.
