Summary

The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) is the largest sample survey of the characteristics and conditions of U.S. public and private schools and their teachers and principals. This booklet provides an overview of the aims of the SASS and the information it provides. In 1999, nearly 124,000 SASS questionnaires were mailed to collect information on the topics previously studied and a number of new topics, which include: (1) school and district performance reports; (2) characteristics of computer use and availability; (3) instructional practices of mathematics teachers in grades 8 through 12; (4) standards for home schooled students; (5) charter schools; and (6) migrant student enrollment and services. Retained or expanded coverage includes teacher and principal characteristics and backgrounds, parent involvement, school safety, and school programs and services. The SASS, which has been administered three times between 1987 and 1994, has measured critical aspects of teacher supply and demand, profiled the qualifications and working conditions of teachers and administrators, and described the basic conditions of schools as workplaces and learning environments.
