The Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program

The Teacher and Principal Evaluation and Growth Program is based on these core principles:

  • High quality teaching and leading are key to student success.
  • Growth in practice is developmental in nature.
  • Growth occurs best when there are clear standards of practice supported by quality professional learning and learning-focused feedback.
  • Evaluation systems should reflect and address the career continuum.
  • The focus for teacher and principal growth should be driven by student learning needs.
