Survey Results

2016 NCTWCS Survey will be March 1st - 25th. 

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 North Carolina Department of Instruction has conducted a pre-survey webinar. The webinar guided attendees through details about the 2016 NC Teacher Working Conditions Survey. You can view an archived recording of the webinar by clicking here.

 

 

"Results from past years' NC TWC Surveys have provided education policymakers and school leaders a robust roadmap to guide positive change and strengthen professional development, school improvement plans and teacher and administrator evaluations," said State Superintendent June Atkinson. "I encourage all teachers and school administrators in North Carolina to take this survey and make their mark on education in our state. I encourage all teachers and school administrators in North Carolina to take this survey and make their mark on education in our state. " - State Superintendent, Dr. June Atkinson

"The North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions Survey fits in naturally with the culture of our school. We are a data driven bunch! We look at behavior data monthly through our Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports Team. Each teacher has a data wall in his/her classroom to help students take responsibility in setting and achieving their own goals. Students have data notebooks that allow them to reflect on their individual learning process. We stress 100% participation in the NCTWCS because we know that data begins with understanding but ends with action. Your collective voice on this survey results in change at both the district and state level. It is well worth your time!" - Valerie Hawthorne
