Teachers, did you TELL?

Schools are competing to win $500 in the run-up to the close of the TELL Colorado Survey. How? By getting their TELL Colorado participation rate to at least 50 percent.

Six schools have each won $500 so far:
West Jefferson Middle School (Jefferson County) with 100% participation;
Irish Elementary School in Ft. Collins (Poudre) with 65%;
Trinidad High School in Trinidad with 100%;
Basalt Elementary School in Glenwood Springs (Roaring Fork) with 63%;
Northglenn Middle School (Adams 12) with 85%;
Erie High School in St. Vrain Valley with 100%!

A huge THANK YOU to the teachers in these schools for getting great participation among all teachers!

There’s less than one week left in the TELL Colorado Survey window – it’s open only until Monday, February 28.

With the announcement last week of Gov. Hickenlooper’s proposed budget cuts for K-12, we need the results of the TELL Colorado Survey even more. We need teachers to TELL the Legislature what they need to deliver a quality public education to our students. We need teachers to TELL the school board and administration what they need. We need to TELL the public what we need. If we want to use the survey data, we need a strong statewide participation rate – and that takes every teacher’s help.

Please join teachers across Colorado and TELL Colorado what working conditions YOU need. The survey is entirely anonymous. The confidential access codes that teachers use to take the survey allow only one use and cannot identify the survey-respondent.

CEA Association Representatives (ARs) should have distributed TELL Survey Codes right after January 31 when the survey opened. If you don’t have your access codes (for any reason at all), contact the TELL Help Desk right away: by email at helpdesk@tellcolorado.org or by phone at 888-280-7903, Monday-Friday 7:30 to 4:30. On the TELL Colorado web site, click on the Instant Messenger in the left menu and get to the Help Desk.

Go to TELL Colorado to learn more and to check the Live Response Rate for your school. Please take 20 minutes from your busy schedule to take the survey and encourage everyone in your school to take it too.
