Take The Survey! Need Help? Response Rate

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTThere have been many requests from the field to extend the survey due to the bad weather we experienced in the first two weeks of the survey. In order to be sure every educator has the opportunity to take part in this survey to have their voices heard and influence decisions on improving our schools, the TELL Maryland Survey will be extended through midnight, Monday, April 6th. 

As of 4:30 PM EST March 27, we have heard from more than 29,500 of our educators! Is your school above the 50% minimum response rate threshold so you will have your own data to use in school improvement planning? We already have 511 schools that have met or exceeded the minimum response rate threshold, with another 200+ getting very close! Find out the response rates for every school by clicking on the 'Response Rate' button located above. 

 A special shout out to Charles, Kent and Worcester County School Districts for all schools reaching the 50% minimum response rate!

Maryland leaders want to ensure that all Maryland educators have the supportive environment necessary to help students achieve at the highest levels. The TELL Maryland Survey is a perceptual survey that allows every educator to TELL Maryland if they have positive teaching and learning conditions that research has shown to be important to student achievement and teacher retention.
