Educator Specific

​Every two years, Oregon conducts a survey that provides an opportunity for teachers and administrators to share perceptions about teaching and learning conditions at Oregon’s public schools. The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Survey examines perceptions in 8 categories linked to teacher retention and student achievement. A record number of educators – 19,556 – took the 2018 Oregon TELL Survey. 

The New Teacher Center administered the survey in 2014, 2016, and 2018, but will no longer administer the survey in future years. Oregon is working with a new survey vendor and will release details during 2019.

The former TeachInOregon website was developed in partnership between the state of Oregon and education organizations to help those aspiring to become an Oregon teacher more easily navigate the journey. It is being updated and expected to relaunch soon. In the interim, please refer to these resource documents and feel free to reach out to EAC staff with questions.​
