Beginning April 3rd Arizona educators will have the opportunity to provide input on key education issues that support school-, district-, and state-level improvement planning by participating in the TELL Arizona (Teaching, Empowering, Leading, and Learning) survey. Research across the country shows that positive teaching and learning conditions are essential for student success and educator retention. Your voice is critical to provide feedback on these conditions.
We are urging every school-based, certified educator to complete the TELL Arizona survey. It will be available online starting April 3rd and ending April 28th. This confidential and anonymous survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. Our goal is 100% participation…the more input we receive, the more valid the data. Help spread the word among your colleagues today.
We understand teachers and principals get inundated with surveys and questionnaires regularly. This specific survey rises above the rest as the most comprehensive for assessing teaching conditions and school culture. The data will be used by education advocates for collaborative problem solving and school improvement. TELL surveys will be conducted over time to enable the collection of longitudinal data.
The 2017 survey data will be used for collaborative problem solving and school improvement and to improve your school’s climate. Individual school results will be made available over the summer after the survey closes, only if enough educators participate – at least 50 percent of licensed educators in the building and at least five respondents.
The TELL Arizona survey will give educators the opportunity to provide data to support the stories that surround the teaching and learning conditions in schools throughout Arizona.
Working in collaboration with the New Teacher Center, this effort is being spearheaded by a coalition of leading statewide education groups such as the Arizona Educational Foundation, Arizona Education Association, Arizona School Administrators, Arizona School Boards Association, and the Arizona K12 Center.
