The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) 2020 Impact Kentucky Working Conditions Survey, formerly the TELL Working Conditions Survey ran from Monday, January 13 - Friday, February 21, 2020. For almost ten years, a working conditions survey has provided all certified Kentucky public school staff members with an opportunity to make their voices heard.
