TPEP Vision Statement, Timeline & Goals
“Student learning is the hallmark of accomplished teaching and leading”
The Teacher & Principal Evaluation Project (TPEP) borne out of E2SSB 6696 and passed in June 2010, offers Washington State the opportunity to design for ourselves the measure of effective teaching and leading. The new Washington State evaluation system must both hold educators accountable and be leverage for authentic professional growth. This emerging system, built on the foundation of the new Teacher and Principal Criteria and developed by Washington State educators, provides a new direction that will empower teachers, principals and district leaders to meet the needs of all students in Washington State. The new evaluation system sets high expectations for what teachers and principals should know and be able to do, values diversity and fosters a high commitment to teaching and leading as professional practice.
