Office of Indian Education Survey Results: Indian Self-Identified Certified Staff (ISICS), Fall 1982.
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 1982. An analysis of student enrollment information is provided on 300 schools surveyed which include public schools, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) schools, non-public schools, and special education schools. Findings of the returned ISICS surveys indicate: 210 ISICS account for approximately 2.0% of 10,316.2 Full Time Employees (FTE's) of the 287 schools that responded to the survey; 136 ISICS in the 15 BIA schools returning the survey account for approximately 64.8% of all ISICS in all schools returning the survey; ISICS account for approximately 0.7% of the 9,000.4 FTE's of the 187 public school districts; and a general increase in ISICS in most category areas (teacher, administrator, and counselor). Student enrollment information indicated that 14,830 Indian students accounted for 11% of the 136,481 students enrolled in the 300 schools surveyed and 17% of all special education school students are Indian. A listing of South Dakota schools with 100 or more Indian students enrolled concludes the document. (ERB)
