Only one more day to TELL Texas! Has your ISD passed the 50 percent mark?
Date Posted: 6/05/2014 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
Did you take the TELL Texas survey yet?Spread the word about TELL Texas! Add our "I DID" sticker to your social media posts after you complete the survey. The TELL Texas school working conditions survey will close tomorrow. Don't miss the June 6 deadline and your chance to tell policymakers about the teaching and learning conditions in your school. The results of this survey will help illustrate teachers' greatest areas of need, whether it's reducing paperwork, improving technology, receiving professional development relating to specific topics, spending less time preparing students for state tests or any other priority you want the legislature to focus on next session. Remember: Campuses and districts that do not achieve a response rate of at least 50 percent will not receive a report with survey results for their campus or district. However, all individual responses, even from educators in campuses or districts that fail to reach the 50 percent threshold before the deadline, will still be included in statewide results.
Is your district on the cusp?As of lunchtime today, these districts only needed one more person to take the TELL Texas survey in order to reach the minimum 50 percent threshold required to receive a report with survey results for their district:
AVERY ISD BROOKELAND ISD BUCKHOLTS ISD CHILLICOTHE ISD DIME BOX ISD DIVIDE ISD RAMIREZ CSD SAN VICENTE ISD SPRING CREEK ISDThe school districts listed below are also extremely close to reaching the minimum participation needed to receive a TELL Texas survey report. They only need between two and five more people to take the survey in order to hit the 50 percent threshold necessary for reporting:
