The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) is an integrated set of surveys concerning elementary and secondary schools and school personnel in the United States. These surveys are designed to collect data on, among other issues, the demographics of the student population, the varying demand for teachers in all regions of the nation, the educational qualifications of school teachers and principals, and the working conditions of teachers. The survey was developed in the late 1980s by the Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)--a component of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement. This CD-ROM contains the results of the third data collection of the SASS, during the 1993-94 school year. Previous SASS data collections occurred in school years 1987-88 and 1990-91. The SASS consists of four separate surveys administered simultaneously to linked samples of respondents. The surveys are: the Teacher Demand and Shortage Survey (school district data), the School Principal Survey, the School Survey, and the Teacher Survey. The accompanying booklet describes how to install the CD-ROM for the first time, hardware requirements, compact disk structure, and instructions for using the CD-ROM. The records counts per questionnaire are also enumerated. (LMI)
