Only four more days to TELL Texas about working conditions at your school!
Date Posted: 6/02/2014 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
Friday, June 6, is the last day for teachers to take the state's TELL Texas survey about teaching and learning conditions on their campuses. ATPE strongly encourages all teachers to participate in the survey, which is anonymous. Sharing your feedback about conditions on your campus will help ATPE advocate on your behalf next legislative session. It takes about 20-25 minutes to complete the survey, but it's well worth your time since this is your opportunity to anonymously provide feedback about the needs of teachers on your campus. At the request of ATPE and other educator groups, the legislature mandated that this survey be conducted statewide, which means that school districts cannot "opt out" of participating in TELL Texas. In other words, your principal or superintendent cannot prevent you from participating in the survey if you choose, and your individual responses cannot be traced back to you since the survey is anonymous. Visit TELLTexas.org or call 1-800-310-2964 to obtain an access code for the survey. (Access codes serve to identify your campus, but cannot be used to identify individual survey respondents.) If you've already taken the TELL Texas survey, help us spread the word to other educators by using this virtual sticker created by ATPE! Right-click on the image to save it to your computer or copy and paste it into your social media posts. Share the image on your Facebook page and with your friends on Instagram. You can also add the image to a tweet and remind your Twitter followers who are fellow teachers to take the survey by Friday. Don't miss your chance. TELL Texas right now what it's like to be a teacher. Your voice is important and your feedback is greatly appreciated!
