Initiated through HB08-1384, the Teaching and Learning Conditions in Colorado (TLCC), formerly known as TELL Colorado, is a statewide, anonymous survey intended to support school, district, and state improvement planning, as well as research and policy. Schools and districts will need more than 50% participation and at least five responses to access their data.

"We are committed to helping ensure that every educator in Colorado has what they need to do their best work with our children. Through our new, shorter TLCC survey, you have the opportunity to tell us about your school and let us know what you need. We are listening. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey and everything you do for our children." -John Hickenlooper, Governor
"We can never thank teachers enough for your expertise, creativity, dedication and compassion for Colorado's student. But we can listen and use the results of the TLCC survey to improve our support for teachers." - Commissioner Katy Anthes
Feedback from educators is integral to the survey development process. CDE has worked with partners to solicit input from a stakeholder working group, including Colorado educators, select researchers, and other education partners; facilitate focus groups and meetings with teachers, principals, and district staff; conduct think-aloud interviews with potential respondents; and coordinate a pilot administration of the TLCC Survey with Colorado educators.
