Tennessee teachers being surveyed for input

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee teachers are being surveyed about the environment at their schools.

According to the Tennessee Department of Education, it's the first statewide survey of its kind.

All school-based licensed educators can anonymously and voluntarily share their perceptions of the teaching and learning environment, which research has shown to be critical to student achievement and teacher retention.

As part of Tennessee's First to the Top reform initiative, the survey will provide additional data for school and district improvements. Additionally, results are expected to influence state policy.

The survey is being conducted through March 11.
