A local elementary school has been selected as one of the best schools in the state based on a biennial teacher survey and other criteria.

  The results are in from a biennial survey that asks Kentucky teachers about the state of teaching and learning in the commonwealth.

A record 89.3 percent of certified educators responded to the voluntary Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Survey, administered by the New Teacher Center.


A voluntary survey that Kentucky teachers take every two years is now available online.

Kentucky's primary and secondary educators can voice their opinions about their working conditions until March 29 in the state’s second Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning survey. The TELL survey gathers information from teachers, counselors, principals and administrators about school leadership, community support, professional development and other issues. The online survey is voluntary and confidential, but schools that have a response rate of 50 percent of higher will be entered into a drawing for $1,000.
