TELL Delaware Survey

TELL Delaware Survey Opens May 1

On May 1 the 2017 TELL Delaware survey will open for educators in Delaware.  TELL Delaware is an anonymous statewide survey of licensed school-based educators to assess teaching conditions at the school, district ,and state level. The survey offers educators an avenue to share their opinions on topics such as use of time, professional development, teacher leadership, school leadership, and parent engagement.  If used effectively, the data also helps schools generate effective plans to ensure that every Delaware educator has the supportive environment necessary to help students achieve at the highest levels!    

How do you take the survey? 

During the week of April 24th an identified Association Representative (AR) in your building should have received a packet from the New Teacher Center.  The packets include letters for each educator in the building describing this year’s statewide survey.  Each letter has a different anonymous access code that can only be used one time.  It can NOT be used to identify you as an individual. The code ensures that each educator takes the survey only once and that your school is correctly identified. 

Your voice is essential!  In 2013, more than 6,000 educators (59 percent) in the state responded and 78 percent of schools (175 out of 225) met the 50 percent response rate threshold required to receive an individual school-level data report! Help us hear from all of our school-based educators this year.  Please take the survey (it only takes 20-30 minutes) and encourage your colleagues to participate as well. You can track the response rate (not answers) in your school in real time on the survey website. Individual school results will be available online in late June 2017, provided that each school meets the minimum threshold for response -- at least 50% of licensed personnel in the building and at least five respondents.
The survey window is scheduled from May 1 to May 26.  Click on to view a sample of the educator letter.
