Snapshot '99: 1998-99 School District Profiles.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Office of Policy Planning and Research.
This publication provides a detailed look at public education in Texas for the 1998-1999 school year. It provides the basic information needed to examine the differences among school districts and to assess their relative strengths and weaknesses. "Snapshot '99" begins with an overview of education at the state level, followed by the predominant content of the book, the "Detailed Statistics" section. This section contains 87 different items of information for the state, regions within the state, and each of the 1,042 school districts in Texas, as well as information for the state's 61 charter schools. The 87 items provide information on student demographics and performance, staff characteristics, and school district finances. For 1998-1999, the longitudinal dropout rate and the completion rate have been added to the indicators described; the number of regular high school students and the 5-year percentage change in total students have been dropped. Five appendixes include definitions of the data items, a bibliography, a list of data sources, endnotes, and a school district listing. (Contains 28 exhibits and the statistical details in table form.) (SLD)
