A Comparison of AISD District-Wide Surveys: Addressing Responses to Similar Items Across the TELL, Student Climate, and Family Surveys
District-wide surveys are used in a variety of ways around the district and are designed to collect feedback from some of our main district stakeholders. Although there is a general understanding that some of the same topics are examined in these surveys, a comparison of these surveys to determine any direct overlap in survey items has not been explored. Therefore, it is the purpose of this report to identify similar items across these surveys and to examine the relationships between responses to or perceptions of these items.
Relationship Between Principal Leadership and General Climate: Correlations of TELL AISD Subscales by Level

Statistically significant relationships between principal leadership and general climate were found.
This executive summary provides an overview of TELL Survey results in Spring 2019. The survey results are used to monitor working conditions across the district and determine outcomes for many district programs.
