ABOUT TELL Vermont
Governor Shumlin, Secretary of Education Vilaseca, and the Vermont Education Association are proud to announce the 2013 TELL Vermont Survey! The 2013 survey be the second statewide survey of school based educators. Using an updated 2008 TELL Survey instrument, Vermont will again offer a statewide, anonymous, online survey to every educator.
Previous findings, as well as nationwide research show that teaching conditions are positively associated with improved student achievement and teacher retention. The TELL Vermont Survey will provide educators with data, tools and direct support to facilitate school improvement. TELL Vermont includes questions on the following topics:
• Community Engagement and Support
• Teacher Leadership
• School Leadership
• Managing Student Conduct
• Use of Time
• Professional Development
• Facilities and Resources
• Instructional Practices and Support
• New Teacher Support
Every school that reaches the minimum response rate threshold of 40% (and a minimum of 5 respondents) will be able to use its own data in school improvement planning. The TELL Vermont Survey will be administered over a four-week window. Anyone can view the live response rate tracker for every school by visiting www.tellVermont.org during the survey window.
*Designated ESPs include classroom-based support personnel such as teacher assistants and para-professionals
