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 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 and private 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. The next administration of NTPS was originally planned for 2019–20 and the NTPS 2019–20 preliminary activities were approved in October 2018 with a change request approved in February 2019 (OMB# 1850–0598 v.24–25). However, due to staffing shortages at NCES, NCES had to delay the NTPS 2019–20 administration by one year, to the 2020–21 school year. No changes are planned to the materials and procedures approved for NTPS preliminary activities (OMB# 1850–0598 v.24–25), besides delaying all activities by one year. This request provides the dates, procedures, and materials for NTPS 2020–21 preliminary activities. After NTPS 2020–21, NCES plans to administer the next NTPS three years later, during the 2023–24 school year. Following the 2023–24 administration, NTPS is expected to be conducted every 2 years if resources allow. Dated: May 23, 2019.

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