The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) AISD Survey gathers information about school conditions from the educators working in schools. TELL obtains perceptions on a variety of issues related to student achievement and staff retention. In 2016, 5,309 AISD teachers (91%) and 3,092 other campus employees completed the survey.
AISD teacher appraisal results from 2014-2015 were used to identify areas of need for professional development in 2015–2016. Results from the Professional Development and Appraisal System and Professional Pathways for Teachers (PPfT) were included.
