The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has been working since 2010 to develop an educator effectiveness model that will incorporate those attributes that are most critical to the way teachers, non-teaching professionals, and principals are evaluated as well as providing training tools for professional growth that provide support as part of a fair effective evaluation process.
The first of the new field-tested systems, for classroom teachers, has been implemented as of July 1, 2013. The next systems for non-teaching professionals and principals will begin implementation on July 1, 2014. Click here to learn more about the project.
