National Center for Education Statistics
The Common Core of Data (CCD) nonfiscal surveys consist of data submitted annually to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) by state education agencies (SEAs) in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the four U.S. Island Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands), the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), and the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE). The purpose of the CCD nonfiscal surveys is to provide a listing of all schools (101,805 in 2008- 09) and agencies (18,103 in 2008-09) that provide free public elementary and secondary education in the United States and its jurisdictions, along with basic descriptive statistical information on each school and agency listed. The CCD includes all settings in which free public education is provided to children. In the 2008-09 CCD Local Education Agency Universe Survey, there are 18,350 records, one for each public elementary and secondary education agency in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the DoD schools (overseas and domestic), the BIE, and the four outlying areas. After adjustments for closed agencies are removed from the count, 18,103 agencies remain. Of these 18,103 agencies, 14,059 are regular local school districts, 1,414 are supervisory unions or regional educational centers, 264 are state-operated agencies, 2,171 are charter school agencies, and 195 are federally operated or other agencies. American Samoa and Guam did not report 2008-09 CCD data. The information for American Samoa and Guam in this file was carried over from the 2007-08 data. The CCD system provides variables that enable the data provider and the data user to identify and select records according to the categories of interest to them. The Local Education Agency Universe data file includes the following variables: NCES agency ID number, state agency ID number, agency name, phone number, mailing address, physical location address, agency type code, supervisory union number, Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) county code, county name, core based statistical area (CBSA) code, metropolitan/micropolitan code, metropolitan status code, district locale code, congressional district code, operational status code, low/high grade span offered, number of schools, number of full-time-equivalent (FTE) teachers, number of ungraded students, number of PK-12 students, number of special education/Individualized Education Program (IEP) students, number of English language learner (ELL) students, instructional staff fields, and support staff fields. This document contains a user's guide and four appendices as follows: (1) Record Layout for the Common Core of Data Local Education Agency Universe Survey: School Year 2008-09; (2) Value Distribution, Field Frequencies, and Data Tables for the Common Core of Data Local Education Agency Universe Survey: School Year 2008-09; (3) Glossary for the Common Core of Data: School Year 2008-09; and (4) State Notes for the Common Core of Data: School Year 2008-09.
