The American School District Panel (ASDP) is the newest addition to the RAND Corporation's American Educator Panels (AEP) and was designed to survey district leaders several times each school year. RAND recruits ASDP members using probabilistic sampling methods, which allow researchers to weight survey results to generalize to the national population of school districts and charter management organizations. This report provides technical information about the spring 2022 ASDP survey of district leaders. The authors describe the survey administration and weighting processes they used to produce nationally representative estimates.
The research described in this report was conducted by RAND Education and Labor and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
