State Survey

A survey of all 50 states and District of Columbia was conducted in Fall 2020 to gain state-specific information to provide context to the findings of the SLIDE study’s analysis of National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) library staffing data and to the planned interviews of school district leaders who make staffing decisions. As part of the grant, a school library leader, some in a state government/agency position or in a state school library association, agreed to participate in the grant as a “State Intermediary” to help share project findings and assist with providing state-level information. The responses are shared in the following reports.

Report: State Contexts of School Librarian Employment  (including survey questions and state responses)

Report: Requirements for School Librarian Employment: A State-by-State Summary

Report: Appendix to the Contexts of School Librarian Employment
