Whitener, Summer D.; And Others
First conducted during the 1987-88 school year, the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) provides periodic data on public and private schools in the United States. The Student Records Questionnaire was added during the 1993-94 cycle of SASS to collect student-level data from public schools, private schools, and schools funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The schools provided information from their administrative records for randomly selected students; American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) students were oversampled. Extensive data tables present total national enrollments by type of school, race/ethnicity, sex, community type (rural/urban), and region; describe characteristics of AIAN students (tribal membership and enrollment, currently taught or counseled by AIAN staff); and provide information from BIA schools, public schools, and private schools for AIAN students, other minority students, and White non-Hispanic students, and for males and females on the following: (1) students who withdrew, dropped out, or were chronically truant and reasons for the behavior; (2) students receiving special programs or services; (3) disabilities; (4) retention in grade; (5) junior high and high school students enrolled in various science and mathematics courses; (6) students enrolled in various Native studies, culture, and language courses; (7) students who completed advanced placement courses; (8) high school juniors and seniors who sent transcripts to colleges; and (9) students whose primary language is not English and those with limited English proficiency. Technical notes detail survey content, methodology, and definitions. Appendices include standard error tables, the Student Records Questionnaire, and a list of SASS data products. (SV)
