Key Statistics on Public Elementary and Secondary Schools and Agencies: School Year 1997-98. Survey Report.
Hoffman, Lee M.
This report provides basic information about public elementary and secondary schools and education agencies during the 1997-1998 and 1996-1997 school years. The data describe the numbers and types of these institutions, their students, and staff. The purpose is to make this information easily accessible through a number of summary tables. The statistics were collected through the Common Core of Data (CCD) survey system. The CCD reports data provided voluntarily each year by education agencies from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools, and 5 outlying areas. The system includes the Public Elementary and Secondary School Universe Survey and the Local Education Agency Universe Survey, which are the major focus of this report. The report contains tables for two school years, with the more current data presented first. Tables 1 through 14 and 30 through 43 contain information about the public schools and education agencies. They cover numbers, size (in terms of pupils), urbanicity, and grades served. Tables 15 through 24 and 44 through 53 provide information about student characteristics and outcomes. This includes the distribution of students by grade level, by various racial and ethnic groups, the numbers eligible for free lunch, and the numbers of students completing high school. The last tables, 25 through 29 and 54 through 58, report the numbers of teachers and other school staff. These tables focus on pupil/teacher ratios and the ratio of teachers to administrators and teachers to support staff. A glossary is included. (Contains 1 figure and 58 tables.) (SLD)
