(CNN)The nation's school districts are making strides in their efforts to reopen, but new data shows that many more students are still learning fully remotely than fully in-person.

Just 39% of fourth-graders are attending full-time in-person school and just 29% of eighth-graders, according to data released on Wednesday from the Department of Education's National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

The data comes from a nationwide survey of school districts, looking at Grade 4 and Grade 8, assessing mode of instruction available, what proportion of students are using each method, a breakdown of instruction method by race, attendance rates, as well as what percentage of teachers have received a Covid-19 vaccine.

About three-quarters of US public schools are open for full-time in-person or hybrid learning, but this new data shows that the percentage of students actually attending in-person is still the minority.

For the mode of instruction available to fourth-graders, 51% of schools were open for full-time in-person, and 32% were open for hybrid.

The survey said for the month of February 2021, 39% of fourth-graders were attending fully in-person, 18% attended hybrid, and 42% were fully remote.

For the mode of instruction available to eighth-graders, 46% of schools were open for full-time in-person and 38% were open for hybrid.

"More than half of Black, Hispanic, and Asian fourth-graders learn fully remotely, while nearly half of White fourth-graders learned full-time in-person, in school," according to the study.
