Pittsburgh Public Schools Leaders Weigh in on Teaching Conditions
"Your feedback since 2010 has helped the District and the PFT work collaboratively to improve the working conditions for educators. As we strive to become a District of continuous improvement, we encourage you to keep sharing your voice so we can help all students become college, career and life-ready."
- Dr. Anthony Hamlet, Superintendent, Pittsburgh Public Schools
"You work so hard each and every day in order to ensure that the teaching and learning environment in your school is a positive one for your students, their families, and for you and all of your colleagues. An important part of continuing to improve is taking the time to reflect on the progress that has been made, and to target areas that still need to be addressed. The Teaching and Learning Conditions Survey is key to this monitoring process. Please take time to fill out this vital survey."
- Nina Esposito-Visgitis, PFT President
"The data we collect from our Teaching and Learning Conditions survey is invaluable. It is used in our effort to maintain a positive, collaborative climate in which our children can learn and grow. We analyze this data to inform our on-going professional development and our school improvement plan. Through this medium, we have important information to not only address areas of concern but also to celebrate the many successes that are identified by teachers and staff."
- Dr. Rodney Necciai, Principal, Pittsburgh Langley
“Hands down, the Teaching and Learning Conditions survey has been the most effective tool for assessing school climate and subsequently implementing the necessary changes to improve the day-to-day operation of our school. Granting educators an opportunity to identify our school’s strengths and weaknesses has had a dramatic impact on how we tackle school improvement from one year to another.”
