Teacher and Principal Evaluation Program

Teacher and Principal Growth—Our New Evaluation System

Moreover, intensive training to ensure accurate teacher and principal ratings is an important topic that is intertwined with educators’ trust in the system.

TPEP Core Principles

  • Quality teaching and leading is critically important.
  • Professional learning is a key component of an effective evaluation system.
  • Teaching and leading is work done by a core team of professionals.
  • Evaluation systems should reflect and address the career continuum.
  • An evaluation system should consider and balance “inputs or acts” with “outputs or results.”
  • Teacher and principal evaluation models should coexist within the complex relationship between district systems and negotiations.
