About the NC TWC Initiative
The North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions (NC TWC) survey is an anonymous statewide survey of licensed school-based educators to assess teaching conditions at the school, district and state level. First administered in 2002 as part of the Governor's Teacher Working Conditions Initiative, it is conducted biennially.
The results of this survey are one component of the on-going process for collaborative school and district improvement plans. Results are also used as artifacts in the educator and administrator evaluation instruments in our state.
The 2014 NC TWC Survey will be administered March 10-April 4.. School-based licensed educators will be able to complete the survey anytime during the four-week window, 24 hours a day, from any Internet location using the anonymous access code provided.
Research from around the country shows that teaching conditions are positively associated with improved student achievement and teacher retention. The NC TWC Survey results will provide educators with data, tools and direct support to facilitate school improvement. NC TWC Survey includes questions on the following topics:
· Community Engagement and Support
· Teacher Leadership
· School Leadership
· Managing Student Conduct
· Use of Time
· Professional Development
· Facilities and Resources
