TPEP Core Principles
- Quality teaching and leading is critically important.
- Professional learning is a key component of an effective evaluation system.
- Teaching and leading is work 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.

Rater Agreement in Washington State
To assist districts through the collaborative learning process, ESD 112 can provide information or supports for all the stages of implementation as defined by OSPI.
Understanding the “Big Ideas” of the Instructional or Leadership Framework.
- For Teachers: An Overview of Your District’s Instructional Framework. A one-day introduction to the structure of your district’s selected instructional framework.
- For Principals: An Overview of Your District’s Instructional Framework A two-day introduction to the structure of your district’s selected instructional framework.
This stage is the application of the framework as a formative tool through the use of self-assessment, goal setting, gathering evidence and using multiple measures of performance. OSPI has assigned districts to an Instructional Framework Specialist who can provide up to 30 hours of ongoing support for all who evaluate classroom teachers.
Utilizing the framework for summative purposes. Participants will explore ways to assess artifacts and observation data, provide high-quality feedback for growth and combine multiple measures of evidence into a summative score in order to maximize rater agreement.
