Kentucky Teachers Asked to Take Survey About Their Schools

A voluntary biennial survey for Kentucky teachers that's meant to measure their opinions of schools, resources, education leadership and community support is now available to take online.

Nearly 90 percent of teachers across the state took the Kentucky TELL Survey in 2013—and many school systems learned that teachers thought poorly of their school's access to technology.

Also, half of respondents wanted more professional development on the new Common Core standards.

In 2013, teachers gave the lowest score to the role they're given in "providing input on how the school budget will be spent."

To use the data for a school's going improvement planning process, that school needs to have at least half of its teachers take the survey (and at least five teachers for smaller schools).

The anonymous and confidential survey will be open until March 31.

If you're a teacher, you can take the survey here.
