TLC survey now open to Iowa teachers and administrators
All public school teachers and administrators in Iowa are encouraged to provide feedback on opportunities for collaboration, professional development, career advancement, and perceived quality and effectiveness of Teacher Leadership and Compensation (when applicable).
The survey links are specific to school districts within their associated Area Education Agencies. Survey links also have been emailed directly to superintendents and principals for distribution.
Participation in the survey is highly encouraged. The findings from the survey will allow the Iowa Department of Education to determine if Teacher Leadership and Compensation (TLC) is making progress toward achieving its intended goals. In addition, your feedback will be used by the Commission on Educator Leadership and Compensation and the Statewide TLC Support Group to determine support for districts and to make recommendations on the system as a whole.
Finally, the results of the survey, along with the results of the Department’s other TLC evaluation efforts, will be shared with stakeholders throughout the state to communicate the impact TLC is having.
This study is being conducted by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit research organization. This survey is strictly confidential with no way to track the responses back to individuals who complete the survey.
The survey must be filled out by May 6. More information about the Evaluation of the Teacher Leadership and Compensation Program and Teacher Support Survey.
