Educator Evaluation and Support Systems (Teacher and Principal)
As part of its conditionally approved ESEA Flexibility Request and, in the case of principal evaluation, bolstered by state legislation, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is piloting new teacher and principal evaluation and support systems. During Year 2, TXCC assisted TEA in the facilitation of steering committees of educators and stakeholders in revising teacher standards and in developing new evaluation/observation rubrics in collaboration with TEA's vendors, NIET and McREL. Year 3 work focused on pilot implementation and feedback collection. Year 4 will expand the state's pilot of the new systems. TXCC will support the Agency's rule revision process and facilitate a formative feedback collection strategy designed to gauge progress in preparation for full implementation of the new systems in 2016-2017.
