The main purpose of this pamphlet is to furnish: (1) a detailed series of county maps portraying all of the public school districts by type in South Dakota. (2) The location of all common schools operating in each county with their respective enrollment as of 1949-50. (3) The location of all common schools from which their respective districts are sending pupils as tuition students either to neighboring common schools or to town and consolidated schools. (4) A summary at the end in which is given the number of schools by counties and indicating where each school has sent its tuition pupils for 1949-50. The data in this study was obtained principally from two separate questionnaires, one sent to county superintendents, and the other sent to town and consolidated school superintendents. Acknowledgements are due to both groups of superintendents answering the questionnaires, and to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction for furnishing certain basic materials.
