California Department of Education Library SurveyThis is the annual online school library survey for California schools conducted each year.
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 closed. It will be open to collect information from individual schools about their libraries in 2016–2017 starting in fall 2017. Prior year survey responses are available as well.
