Key indicators of educational progress in South Dakota are presented for the 1996-97 school year to fulfill the legislative requirement for reporting. The publication includes attendance and dropout rates, achievement test scores, American College Testing assessment scores, and feedback from the Board of Regents on students entering state colleges and universities. These scores are a snapshot in time and should be used with other indicators of progress. In 1997-98, South Dakota enrolled 132,780 students in its 767 schools. Of the total, 11.98% were from minority groups, and 30.17% were eligible for free lunch. South Dakota's high schools graduated 9,135 students in 1997-98.
