Directory of Public Elementary and Secondary Education Agencies, 1996-97.
McDowell, Lena, Comp.; Sietsema, John, Comp.
This directory is part of the continuing series of education directories published by the National Center for Education Statistics. It provides a current, state-by-state listing of local public school systems and other education agencies dedicated to the many institutions and organizations that deal with these entities. The directory offers instructions on usage, describes the types of agencies listed, and identifies the many abbreviations used in the text. Information on the universe of public schools and education agencies is collected annually in the NCES Common Core of Data (CCD) surveys. The surveys are completed from administrative records of the state education agencies by Common Core of Data Coordinators. The contents for the directory come primarily from the CCD education agency universe data collection of spring, 1997. In the directory's introduction, several tables that summarize the contents of the file are provided. They are followed by the listing of education agencies, organized by state and type of agency. The directory lists all reported public, elementary/secondary education agencies in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Department of Defense schools.
