NC Teacher Working Conditions Survey Launches March 1

nctwc_header3Almost 90 percent (88.6) of all licensed North Carolina educators participated in the 2014 NC Teacher Working Conditions Survey (NC TWCS). This year’s goal, as always, is to have a 100 percent response rate from every North Carolina school. For the past 12 years, the survey has been a platform used to amplify educator’s voices concerning working conditions in their schools and districts. It also is used to inform state-level policy decisions.

The window for this anonymous, online survey will run from March 1-25. Please visit the NC TWCS website or talk to your school’s NC TWCS representative if you have questions about the survey process. If your school does not have a representative, please contact your Regional Education Facilitator for assistance.
