About Teacher and Principal Evaluation Project

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

  • High quality teaching and leading are key to student success
  • Growth in practice is development 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

Evaluation Guidance for 2020-2021

The TPEP Steering committee put together new guidance around Comprehensive evaluations for the 2020-21 school year only.

  • Please see Bulletin 063-20 for details
  • Guidance on having a single Student Growth Goal (criterion 3 0r 6) this year for teachers on a modified Comprehensive evaluation and criterion related ideas for teaching in a virtual setting will be released in early September.
