TASB Employee Surveys

Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) HR Services developed the survey in collaboration with McAllen ISD in 2013. Originally MISD provided the survey to all teacher and professional staff only; however, the district decided to include instructional aides in 2018. In order to maintain year‐to‐year comparisons, the reports starting in 2018 are separated between teacher/professional and instructional aides.
