Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 700. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 397. Abstract: This is a revision to the national survey on charter school facilities that is designed to inform the public of the conditions and operations of buildings used by charter schools. The survey questionnaire includes 45 questions. Depending on the facility status of schools, respondents will follow skip patterns to answer questions that are only relevant to their schools. A pilot test shows that the questionnaire takes approximately 34 minutes to complete. National Charter School Resource Center (NCSRC) will administer in fall 2021 via an online survey platform. Responses to the survey questions will inform the public of the physical conditions of buildings charter schools use as well as resources and challenges for charter schools to access and maintain facilities. The survey follows a stratified systematic design to draw a sample of 700 charter schools nationwide. NCSRC will coordinate with Charter School Organizations (CSOs) and local entities to recruit schools and maximize the response rate of the survey. NCSRC staff will clean and analyze the survey data using statistical analytic and reporting techniques appropriate to the data collected. Dated: November 4, 2020.
