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.
