Education Code Section 18122 directs local governing boards to report to the California Department of Education (CDE) on the condition of school libraries. CDE created this online data collection survey to meet the Education Code requirement and to develop an accurate picture of the condition of school libraries across the state.
The annual online survey is now open to collect information from individual schools about their libraries in
2014-2015. It will be active through Saturday, April 30, 2016. Prior year survey responses are available anytime.
