Important Clarification on Reading Survey for K-3 Teachers

CEA and AFT-Connecticut have worked with the State Department of Education (SDE) to successfully resolve issues regarding the reading survey required by the state legislature in Section 13 of Public Act 13-245. K-3 teachers are now required to take the survey, which has already been delayed to allow for clarification, in 2015 during one of two administration windows.

CEA, AFT-Connecticut, and the SDE have come to agreement that survey results:

  • will not affect an individual teacher’s summative evaluation;
  • will not affect an individual teacher’s certification;
  • will be administered at no cost to the individual;
  • will ensure the anonymity of the individual; and,
  • will be used to drive professional development and student instruction.

There is more important information in the circular letter the SDE distributed to superintendents — please click here to read it.

    Resolving it would be that you said absolutely no elementary teachers would have to take this ridiculous survey. I am K-6 certified and because I am teaching 3rd grade I am subjected to a ridiculous test. I find it completely unacceptable that all teachers K-12 do not have to take this “survey”. You resolved nothing.
