This report presents statistics of city school systems for the school year 1935-36. prior to 1933-34 school statistics for cities included in county unit systems were estimated. Most of these cities are in Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, and West Virginia. Since the method of estimating school statistics for the cities included with the counties in these States was very unsatisfactory it was discontinued in 1933-34. A few data are, however, presented in tables 3 and 4 for the counties in which the cities are located. In eight cities, there is more than one school district. As in previous years statistics for each school district within a city are presented. The cities are divided into four population groups on the basis of the 1930 census. Group 1 includes 90 cities having a population of 100,000 or more with school systems of their own; Group II includes 211 cities having a population of 30,000 to 99,999 with school systems of their own; Group III includes 642 cities having a population of 10,000 to 29,999 with school systems of their own; and Group IV includes 1,948 cities having a population of 2,500 to 9,999 that maintain their own schools. Specific topics covered in this bulletin include: (1) Enrollments; (2) School attendance; (3) The school term and number of days attended; (4) Supervisory and teaching staff; (5) Pupil-teacher ratio; (6) Cost per pupil in average daily attendance; (7) Percentage distribution of the city school dollar; (8) Schools, school buildings, and property investments; (9) Bonded indebtedness of city school systems; (10) Night schools; and (11) Summer schools.
