The US Department of Education requires the annual collection of faculty and staff data. The Department of Education uses this data primarily for the Non-Fiscal Surveys of the Common Core of Data. Other offices as well as local departments of education use this data for reporting requirements.
This data collection pertains to school and LEA 2015-16 school year rosters of faculty and staff, their titles, and full-time equivalent percentages. This list of employees will become the basis for other reports on teachers, principals, teaching assistants, and support staff.
