Vt. educators asked to assess schools

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Thousands of educators across Vermont are getting the opportunity to assess their schools.

The Vermont NEA is reaching out to roughly 12,000 teachers, instructional aids and administrators to have them participate in this year's "Tell Vermont" survey. The anonymous online effort is being conducted by a third party. It's evaluating a number of topics tied to student learning, including facilities and resources, professional development and school leadership.

"If they see that one district is doing a great job and finding another district that might be struggling, they could start a conversation between these two districts. So, it is not necessarily things that are going to cost money, it is going to get a conversation started," said Martha Allen, the president of the Vt. NEA.

Schools that have at least 40 percent of staff respond to the survey will have access to the results and can use them for school improvement planning.
