RE:         Climate Survey from CTA

Yesterday, the Classroom Teachers (CT) associates sent out a climate survey asking for your responses. Please be aware that this survey was not authorized by the District and is, in fact, considered to be a breach of the collaborative process between the Association and the District. The survey was not shared with Superintendent or the “designee” at least one business day prior to distribution as stated in our contractual agreement between the School Board of Obum County and the Obum County Classroom Teachers. Past practice has been to develop surveys for distribution through the Collaborative Leadership Team (CLT).

This particular survey has not been sanctioned by the District or the CLT and therefore the results will not be recognized by the District.*

Climate surveys are currently recommended as a best practice through the school improvement process, and surveys are sent to parents, students, teachers each year, throughout the school year. School Advisory Committees (SAC) may use a valid and reliable survey written by District personnel or they may write their own*.

Thank you for continued hard work and commitment to our students.


*Since when is a survey not valid only when it originates out of the union offices, without sanction of the county? Since when do you bully individual union members by sending shit like this out?
