|Title:||Public-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 107): Programs and Services for High School English Learners|
|Description:||This file contains data from a fast-response survey titled "Programs and Services for High School English Learners." This survey provides the first nationally representative data on programs and services for high school English learners (ELs). NCES released the results of this survey in the First Look report “Programs and Services for High School English Learners in Public School Districts: 2015 –16” (NCES 2016-150).
Questionnaires and cover letters were mailed to the superintendent of each sampled district in September 2015. The letter stated the purpose of the study and requested that the questionnaire be completed by the person(s) in the district most knowledgeable about programs and services for English learners at the high school level. Respondents were asked to respond for the current 2015–16 school year. Respondents were offered options of completing the survey on paper or online. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in October 2015 and completed in February 2016. The weighted response rate was 89 percent.
Respondents reported about programs and services for high school ELs, including instructional approaches, newcomer programs, online or computer-based programs, and programs or services (e.g., tutoring) designed specifically for high school ELs.
