Tpep core principles

TPEP Core Principles

  • The critical importance of teacher and leadership quality

  • The professional nature of teaching and leading a school

  • The complex relationship between the system for teacher and principal evaluation and district systems and negotiations

  • The belief in professional learning as an underpinning of the new evaluation system

  • The understanding that the career continuum must be addressed in the new evaluation system

  • The system must determine the balance of “inputs or acts” and “outputs or results”

Polarity management

Polarity Management

  • Dilemma or tension among two values

  • Requires management rather than problem solving

  • Either/or perspective replaced by both/and

  • Both values in service of a higher purpose

  • Both values are good and necessary

  • Challenge is to manage the right balance
