About TPEP

Teacher and Principal Evaluation Program

To assist districts through the collaborative learning process, ESD 112 can provide:

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.
