This document presents statistical data on South Dakota and its 176 school districts for the 1998-99 school year. In 1998-99, South Dakota had 757 public schools serving 129,709 students. About half of the schools enrolled 100 or fewer students, and about one-quarter of school districts served fewer than 200 students. Minority group enrollment was about 12.3 percent, including 9.5 percent American Indian. Section 1 summarizes state data and covers: number of districts and schools; 1998 fall enrollment; program indicators for early childhood programs, home schooling, alternative schools, vocational and technical education, general educational development (GED), adult basic education, birth to age 3 services, special education, and nutrition services; student achievement (graduation rate and scores on college entrance examinations and standardized achievement tests); dropouts; administrator and teacher characteristics and salaries; and financial data. Sections 2 and 3 summarize district and school data and present profiles for individual districts. Each profile includes details on area and location, enrollment and attendance, percent eligible for free or reduced lunch, students transported, revenues, state aid, taxable valuations, levies, expenditures, instructional staff, and individual school data. Section 4 contains state data tables on staff, district rankings, expenditures, revenues, state aid, and changes in fund balances. Section 5 is a glossary. (SV)
