This site reports data for California's K-12 public school system only.

After steadily increasing for more than 15 years, enrollment in California schools is leveling off and even declining in some areas.

The percentage of Hispanic students continues to grow while the percentages of African-American and white students have declined. Remaining fairly constant is the percentage of students of Asian, Pacific Islander, and Philippine descent.

About one in five California's public school students need to learn English in order to succeed in school. The percentages are highest in the early grades--about 38% of kindergartners were English learners in 2012-13.

Students are identified as English learners until they achieve district-specified scores on state achievement tests and meet other academic criteria. At that point, the district labels the student as RFEP. The FEP category includes both RFEP students and students whose primary language is not English but who scored high enough on a state test of English proficiency to be considered "initially fluent English proficient" (IFEP).
