Teacher Survey Highlights

Results from the sixth annual Tennessee Educator Survey have been released

Local highlights:

  • 84% of teachers agree that, “The staff feels comfortable raising issues and concerns that are important to them with school leaders.”
  • 79% of teachers agree that “There is an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect within this school.”

Both of these numbers indicate a healthy working relationship between the classroom and administration, and that Blount County is a great place to teach for the overwhelming majority of teachers.DistrictWide

However, there are several schools where a concerning number of educators disagreed with the two statements above. Working together, we can change that climate. Contact your Association Representative if you’d like to assist.

To see more of this year’s results, visit the educator survey website (here). One area that continues to be a concern for educators state-wide is evaluation feedback. 42 percent of teachers surveyed reported that they did not receive feedback on last year’s evaluation.
