The WE LEAD survey is for all staff working in the school, this includes full-time deparment heads or chairs, classroom teachers, instructional support staff, nurses, custodian, cafeteria staff. etc.

What's the benefit of taking the We Learn Student Survey and We Teach Instructional Staff Survey together?

The surveys are valuable tools when taken alone. However, when students and instructional staff take the surveys, the survey results can be compared to highlight similarities and discrepancies between the two groups.

No. You may administer both surveys, the elementary and secondary version, for the price of one WE LEARN survey. Please contact our office to discuss setting up this administration. 

Will my school/district be able to identify me?

No. Your answers will be anonymous.

How can I know if the students took the We Learn survey?

When each student submits the survey, a "Thank You" message will appear. This has no identifying information on it, but confirms completion of the WE Survey. We recommend that they print that page and turn into you with their name on it.
