Additional State Data Notes:

Student counts may contain duplicates (SYs 15-16, 16-17 and 17-18 ). More students have been reported by primary nighttime residence than by grade (SY 17-18)

Alabama LEA counts are not cumulative and only include those students who were homeless at the end of the school year.

Counts of UHY have increased due to training on eligibility and identification (SY 16-17).
