Characteristics of students in South Carolina schools are provided for the 91 geographic school districts and the special schools and districts funded through the Department of Education. Within the districts, schools are arranged alphabetically. The sex distribution and racial and ethnic compositions of students in each school are provided. School attendance is described in terms of rural, urban, or mixed. Student average daily membership counts were rounded at the school level; totals may vary from the source documents due to this rounding. In the 1989-90 school year, the Department of Education funded 417,754 students at the elementary level, 195,951 students at the secondary level, and 1,202 students in combined level schools. Approximately 42% of the membership was made up of minority students and 49% of the membership was made up of female students. Direct instructional services were rendered to students by 35,629 full-time equivalent teachers. Approximately 13% of all secondary-level students were served by 49 area vocational centers that specialized in occupational training. Excluding all special schools, the smallest school had a membership of 10 students, and the largest high school had a membership of 2,549 students. Forty-two pages of tabulated data, a glossary of terms, and a list of source documents are included. (SLD)
