Educator Effectiveness

Educator Effectiveness is an evaluation system for educators focusing on professional growth and development — from pre-service through service.

Great teaching matters. Research has proven effective principals and teachers are the most important school-based factor in every student’s chance to succeed. Every child in every school deserves excellent classroom teachers and building leaders, and teachers deserve to be supported to do their best work.

What is the Educator Effectiveness Evaluation System?

Each year principals and educators prepare an Educator Effectiveness Plan where they reflect on their practice and set goals for student learning. Throughout the year, educators gather data relative to their goals making adjustments when necessary for success. Additionally, principals and educators will engage in observations and receive feedback on their practice.
