Overall, 91% of teachers and paraprofessionals would recommend their school as a good place to work and 91% would recommend their school as a good place for students to learn according to the Garfield Re-2 School District’s 2022 Teaching & Learning Conditions Colorado (TLCC) survey results. The state average for these two questions are 85% and 89% on the same questions. Additionally, 85% of Garfield Re-2’s paraprofessionals feel like they're a part of a team working towards the same goal.

The TLCC is a statewide survey of school-based staff (teachers and building leadership) on their perceptions of the teaching and learning conditions in their schools. Questions were asked about instructional support, professional development, managing student conduct, use of time, leadership, facilities and resources, family and community support, and future plans. Demographic questions were limited to ensure participant anonymity.

Overall, Garfield Re-2’s favorability rating was 82% as measured in eleven different categories while teachers and staff across the state averaged at 76%. Garfield Re-2 School District had 369 total teachers and paraprofessionals participate (66% of eligible staff) in the survey. Garfield Re-2 outperformed the state in 10 of 11 survey categories. 

“From March 2020 forward has been a difficult time across the board, and especially in public education,” said Superintendent Heather Grumley. “We were not sure how this data would reflect our changing times. In a time such as this, our teachers really believe and strongly agree that we have good school leadership. They strongly agree that we have good facilities and resources and that Garfield Re-2 is a good place to work and a good place to learn. That is a testament to every single staff member who has shown up for each other, and for the students of Garfield Re-2 over the last two years.”

This year’s survey included a specific question set related to how staff felt that the pandemic impacted their relationships. Although the data was clear that relationships between teachers, students and families were strained, many other celebrations emerged from the data.

School administrators perceived support from the school district at 92% compared to the state average of 79%;  School leadership received an 89% favorable response compared to the state average of 82%; Overall favorability by new staff in Garfield Re-2 (1-3 years) increased by 6 percentage points to 79% compared to the state average of 73%.

The greatest area for improvement is the use of time where Garfield Re-2’s favorability score was 63%, still above the state average of 57%.


“The TLCC survey is a snapshot in time of how our teachers and staff are feeling about our District. We are proud of the work that our leadership teams have done to support their students and their staff. This data certainly provides guideposts for areas where we can improve, and is certainly something that every staff member across the district can celebrate,” added Superintendent Grumley.
