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 need more than 50% participation and at least five responses to access their data.
"Here in Colorado, we depend on our incredible educators to prepare the next generation for success in the workforce and in life. The TLCC survey provides meaningful, anonymous information about the challenges and opportunities educators are facing in our schools so that we can use these results to offer critical supports. On behalf of Colorado, I want to thank you for your service to our children and ask that you participate in this important survey." - Governor Jared Polis
"A new decade is an opportunity to find new, exciting ways to make Colorado the best state for teachers, and the TLCC survey is one of the best channels for teachers to let us know what they need to be successful" - 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.
Note: This administration of the TLCC was not facilitated through CDE. It was hosted by the CU Denver School of Education and Human Development at the request of a subset of Colorado schools and districts.
