Office of Indian Education Survey Results: Indian Self-Identified Certified Staff (ISICS), Fall 1981.
Fracek, Eugene E.
Developed to meet baseline and support data needs for affirmative action programs, certification standards, and distribution of Indian educators in schools in South Dakota, the Indian Self-Identified Certified Staff (ISICS) Survey presents data received and compiled during August to November 1981. An analysis of student enrollment information is provided on the 299 schools surveyed which include public schools, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) schools, non-public schools, and special education schools. Findings of the ISICS survey indicate: the 157 ISICS account for aproximately 1.5% of 10,338.1 Full Time Employees (FTE) of the 256 schools that responded; 108 ISICS in 12 BIA schools account for approximately 69% of all ISICS in all schools which returned the survey; ISICS account for less than one-half of 1% of 9,037.9 FTE's of the 187 public schools; and a decline in ISICS in most category areas (i.e., teacher, administrator, and counselor). Student enrollment information indicates a decrease (approximately 2%) of overall student enrollment from 1980; an increase (approximately 2%) in the overall Indian student enrollment from 1980; 15,160 Indian students account for 11% of the 138,411 students enrolled in the 299 schools surveyed; and 18% of all special education school students are Indian. A listing of South Dakota Schools with 10% or more Indian students concludes the document. (ERB)
