Kindergarten Teacher Survey
The purpose of the Kindergarten Teacher Survey is to provide Commissioners with information that enables them to make the best possible decisions about investing in programs and services for young children so that they will be well-prepared for school and beyond.
In 2005 the Commission conducted a survey of kindergarten teachers throughout the county to assess and monitor the level of school readiness among incoming kindergarten students. In 2008 the Commission conducted the survey for a second time, with very minimal changes other than to redesign the format to make it more easily completed by the teachers. The survey was conducted again in 2010 and 2012 with no additional changes. No changes were made to the 2014 survey other than to ask teachers to indicate whether or not a child had attended Transitional Kindergarten during the 2013-14 school year. This report provides the results of the 2014 survey, and Appendix 1 provides a comparison of the 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 results.
