Summary

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) conducts a unified set of surveys that facilitates comparison between public and private schools, school districts, and administrator data. The integrated set of surveys is called the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS). A Teacher Followup Survey (TFS) is conducted a year after the SASS survey to collect information on the employment and teaching status, plans, and opinions of teachers in the SASS. The Bureau of the Census is the data collection agent for the SASS, which has four core components: (1) the Teacher Demand and Shortage Survey; (2) the School Principal Survey; (3) the School Survey; and (4) the School Teacher Survey. In certain cycles, questionnaires are added for surveys of interest. The first cycle of the SASS was conducted in the 1987-88 school year, followed by the 1988-89 TFS. The latest cycle was conducted in 1993-94, followed by the 1994-95 TFS. The next expected SASS collection will be in 1998-99. The 1993-94 SASS selected 13,000 schools, including 176 administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and 68,000 teachers. SASS and TFS data are available as public-use data and as restricted-use data for approved educational researchers. This publication describes the contents of the four SASS components and the TFS, discusses the survey design and the operational procedures used to collect the data, and reviews sample selection procedures, the imputation system for item nonresponse, and other technical information. A list of 163 NCES data products related to the SASS and TFS is included. (Contains two tables.) (SLD)
