Hear from Pittsburgh Educators and Leadership about the Teaching and Learning Conditions Survey:

“We are committed to developing strong school cultures for both our students and you, our staff. Your participation in the Teaching and Learning Conditions Survey is one way we rely on you to tell us about our progress in your school. Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this survey!”—Dr. Linda Lane

“Our commitment to creating and improving the teaching and learning environment did not begin with the Empowering Effective Teachers plan. But, the current efforts to improve educational opportunities in Pittsburgh will not succeed without re-dedicating safe and orderly schools as a priority. I urge you to again participate in the Teaching and Learning Conditions survey. The information that you provide is essential to supporting the work that will lead to better outcomes for students.”—Nina Esposito-Visgitis
“The TLC survey provides our administrative team with valuable feedback to improve the teaching and learning conditions at our school.  Authentic feedback from staff is an essential part in the school improvement process.  It provides our school an opportunity to establish goals and develop a plan to reach those goals through a collaborative process.”—Principal Adam Sikorski
"The Teaching and Learning Conditions (TLC) Survey has helped teachers address the needs of the entire school community.  By filling out the TLC survey, it begins the process to analyze what works and doesn’t work in a school climate/culture, and then gives us the foundation needed to address what components need to be managed differently by creating a plan of action.  Teachers want and have a voice that needs to be heard, and by filling out the survey, it gives all stakeholders the opportunity to be truthful in a safe outlet."—Janet Zak, Teacher, Minadeo K-5
