Redesigned from the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) with a focus on flexibility, timeliness, and integration with other ED data, the NTPS system allows for school, principal, and teacher characteristics to be analyzed in relation to one another. NTPS is an in-depth, nationally representative survey of first through twelfth grade public school teachers, principals, and schools. Kindergarten teachers in schools with at least a first grade are also surveyed. NTPS utilizes core content and a series of rotating modules to allow timely collection of important education trends as well as trend analysis. Topics covered include characteristics of teachers, principals, schools, teacher training opportunities, retention, retirement, hiring, and shortages. Preliminary activities for NTPS 2017– 18, namely: (a) Contacting and seeking research approvals from public school districts with an established research approval process (‘‘special contact districts’’), (b) notifying districts that their school(s) have been selected for NTPS 2017–18, and (c) notifying sampled schools of their selection for the survey and verifying their mailing addresses, were approved in November 2016 with revisions in March 2017 (OMB# 1850–0598 v.16–17). This request is to conduct NTPS 2017–18, including all of its recruitment and data collection activities.

    Abstract: The National Teacher and Principal Survey (NTPS), 
conducted biennially by the National Center for Education Statistics 
(NCES), is a system of related questionnaires that provides descriptive 
data on the context of elementary and secondary education. Redesigned 
from the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) with a focus on

system allows for school, principal, and teacher characteristics to be 
analyzed in relation to one another. NTPS is an in-depth, nationally

content and a series of rotating modules to allow timely collection of 
important education trends as well as trend analysis. Topics covered 
include characteristics of teachers, principals, schools, teacher 
training opportunities, retention, retirement, hiring, and shortages. 
Preliminary activities for NTPS 2017-18, namely: (a) Contacting and 
seeking research approvals from public school districts with an 
established research approval process (``special contact districts''), 
(b) notifying districts that their school(s) have been selected for
