Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: June 2006

Limitations: This national survey sample results in an under- representation of American Indian and Alaska Native students. The solution to this problem would be to oversample for this group. However, this approach would increase the cost of the data collection.

Improvements: Monitor the number of American Indian and Alaska Native students through LEAs' reporting on program effectiveness in their Annual Performance Report.
