The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has announced the upcoming launch of the 2020 Impact Kentucky Working Conditions Survey, formerly the TELL Working Conditions Survey. 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.

This year, KDE is asking SBDM District Coordinators to work through the SBDM councils to identify the teacher leader in each school to serve as the Impact Kentucky School Survey Coordinator. The Survey Coordinator is preferably a current SBDM teacher member since they have already been elected as representatives of the teachers. If teachers on the council do not wish to serve as the coordinator, they should lead the selection process to find another teacher in the building. That role will be key to the success of the survey, as these individuals will assist in the distribution and completion of surveys in their building. Once a teacher leader has been selected, please notify your district SBDM coordinator or fill out the registration form.

The survey will run from Monday, January 13 - Friday, February 21, 2020. Council members should encourage all certified staff to take the survey and plan for the meaningful ways the council can use the results once they are available in March.
