The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) is the most extensive survey of elementary and secondary schools in the United States and the teachers and administrators who staff them. Sponsored by the National Center for Education Statistics, SASS has been conducted four times. This report introduces the data from the 1999-2000 SASS. The SASS for 1999-2000 covered four school sectors, each of which is covered in a section of the report: traditional public, private, public charter, and Bureau of Indian Affairs. The SASS design features parallel questionnaires for districts, schools, principals, teachers, and school library media centers. In 1999-2000, interviews were obtained from approximately 4,700 school districts, 12,000 schools, 12,300 principals, 52,400 teachers, and 9,900 school library media centers. Data are presented in a series of tables for each component. Some selected findings are presented with reference to school safety, class size, school programs, teacher salaries, prior teaching experience of principals, professional development, and school library media specialists. Seven appendixes provide supporting information, including standard error tables and technical notes. (Contains 136 tables and 24 references.) (SLD)
