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.
A thorough analysis of the survey results for 2013 through 2015 indicated two items consistently best reflected staff climate/working conditions at every school level each year: a) School leadership makes a sustained effort to address teacher concerns about school leadership, and b) Overall, my school is a good place to work and learn.
In 2013, the Austin Independent School District began administering a voluntary online exit survey to all professional and administrative employees leaving the district. Responses and respondent characteristics are described.
The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) AISD Survey provides information about school conditions from those whose views matter most—educators. The survey addresses a variety of issues related to student achievement and staff retention.
Evidence from this Spring 2012 pilot suggests feedback about teachers can be reliably obtained from students at all grade levels, and that such feedback can provide a valid supplemental measure of teacher quality to accompany additional indicators.
Since 2004, AISD has conducted an annual survey to monitor campus staff’s perceptions of their school environment.The survey measures elements of teaching and learning conditions most critical to school success.
This report examines the relationship between four broad dimensions of school climate (i.e., respectful school environment, school engagement and community involvement, expectations for student achievement, and campus support for teachers) and the percentage of students meeting the state standard on TAKS (math and reading only).
