NCES 2014018 Public-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 105): Condition of Public School Facilities: 2012-13
This file contains data from a fast-response survey titled "Condition of Public School Facilities: 2012-13." This survey was designed to provide national estimates on the condition of public school facilities in the 2012-13 school year. NCES released the results of this survey in the First Look report “Condition of America’s Public School Facilities: 2012-13” (NCES 2014-022).

Questionnaires and cover letters were mailed in January 2013. While individual schools were sampled, the questionnaires were mailed to the districts with which the schools were associated. A separate questionnaire was enclosed for each sampled school. The cover letter indicated that the survey was designed to be completed by district-level personnel who were very familiar with the school facilities in the district. Often this was a district facilities coordinator (although the title of the position varied). The letter indicated that the respondent might want to consult with other district-level personnel or with school-level personnel, such as the principal of the sampled school, in answering some of the questions. Respondents were offered the option of completing the survey via the Web. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in February 2013 and completed in June 2013. The weighted response rate was 90 percent.

Respondents reported on the condition of 17 building systems/features and seven outdoor features. Data on the estimated total cost of all repairs/renovations/modernizations required to put the school’s onsite buildings in good overall condition were also collected. Other survey topics included the year in which the school’s main instructional building was constructed, and whether any major repair/renovation/modernization work was currently being performed. Respondents also reported whether various steps had been taken in the last 5 years to improve energy efficiency at the school.

NFES 2012808 The Forum Guide to Facilities Information Management: A Resource for State and Local Education Agencies
This guide builds on a 2003 Forum publication, Facilities Information Management: A Guide for State and Local Education Agencies. The data elements presented in this guide are described in greater detail in the NCES Handbooks Online at http://nces.ed.gov/programs/handbook. They have been refined and expanded to meet the latest needs of facilities managers, policymakers, and other stakeholders interested in the condition of public school buildings and grounds. In particular, data elements were added or updated to support changing expectations for sustainable design and management; community use, co-location, and joint use; and budget and finance associated with private financing for public charter school facilities. In addition, the first three levels of data reflect standards from the UNIFORMAT classifications system to create a better linkage between school district facility data and information classifications in the construction industry.

NCES 2008011 Public-Use Data Files and Documentation: Public School Principals’ Perceptions of Their School Facilities: Fall 2005
This file contains data from a 2005 fast-response survey titled "Public School Principals' Perceptions of Their School Facilities: Fall 2005." The study provides information about principals’ satisfaction with various environmental factors in their schools, and the extent to which they perceive those factors as interfering with the ability of the school to deliver instruction. Environmental factors included lighting, temperature control, air quality, and structural conditions. The study also provides information on the extent of the match between the enrollment and the capacity of the school buildings. NCES released the results of the survey in the publication Public School Principals Report on Their School Facilities: Fall 2005. Questionnaires and cover letters for the study were mailed to the principal of each sampled school in mid-September 2005. The letter introduced the study, and requested that the questionnaire be completed only by the principal of the school listed on the label. Respondents were also offered the option of completing the survey via the Web. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in early October and completed in late January 2006. The final response rate was 90 percent. Principals were asked about their satisfaction with various environmental factors in classrooms located in permanent buildings and in portable (temporary) buildings (if applicable) in their school, and the extent to which they perceived those environmental factors as interfering with the ability of the school to deliver instruction in those classrooms. They were also asked about the ways in which their school used portable (temporary) buildings and the reasons for using them, and the availability of dedicated room or facilities for particular subjects (science labs, art rooms, music rooms, and gymnasium) and the extent to which these facilities were perceived to support instruction. Principals were also asked about the enrollment and design capacity of their schools, and approaches for coping with overcrowding (if applicable).
