Good business practices have long been recognized for the public schools in South Dakota. It is necessary for efficient operation of school systems. The purpose of this study was to compare a local public school, Bryant Public School, with national, state and city norms as far as total school expenditures are concerned and in percentages with that of other schools. It was also important to determine what percent each character classification reveals itself. It was hoped that this would help for better budgeting procedures and give an overall view of school operations for the preceding ten year school period. The author also attempted to show what the trend of the operational costs are and to compare it with other schools and state norms. People have long been interested in school and where the tax dollar goes. It is with that purpose in mind that this study was made. This study revealed that the Bryant Public School was operating in line with national averages.
