Two decades of research have consistently told us that teachers matter more to student learning than any other in-school factor. Improving the effectiveness of teachers is critical to student success, as well as creating safe, nurturing school environments based on the premise of high expectations for all.

Through Teacher Evaluation, we are actively engaged in improving teaching and learning by providing educators with the feedback they need to improve their practice. The measures of the Teacher Evaluation System work to provide a holistic look at teacher practice through both formal observations and impact on student learning.
