The Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program was developed based on these core principles:  

  • High quality teaching and leading are critically important. 
  • Professional learning is a key component of an effective evaluation system. 
  • Teaching and leading are 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.
