The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Colorado survey is an anonymous statewide survey of licensed, school-based educators to assess teaching conditions at the school, district and state level. (Note: teachers and principals in charter schools are included and do not need to be licensed to participate.) TELL Colorado is administered every other year. The survey results are intended to support school and district improvement planning and to inform policy decisions.
