South Dakota's Department of Education has put out this year's report card on school performance.
It found that 90 percent of eligible students finished high school, with just under 83 percent doing so in four years. Both of those figures are about the same as last year.
The report also found that just over 67 percent of students who took the ACT met the South Dakota Board of Regents' benchmark in math and just over 75 percent met the benchmark in English. The state says those figures showing college readiness are slightly lower than last year.
Report card results for school districts are online.
