K-5 Teacher Survey – Make your voice heard!

Stakeholder Perspectives on Instructional Support and Professional Development Needs to Enhance Literacy for All Students

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk (MCPER) are conducting a survey to learn more about teachers’ perspectives on the literacy development of all learners and preferences for professional development. The information gathered will guide development of training modules and classroom resources designed to assist teachers in the transition from state assessments based on modified standards to the general state assessment, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®). More information on this initiative is available at Targeting the 2 Percent.

Educators who work with students in grades kindergarten–5 are invited to complete the short survey at www.survey.utexas.edu/tea.
