  • Evidence is the documentation of teaching performance.
  • SAFE-T templates--i.e., standardized guides for recording evidence--are available:
    • Teacher templates (TTs) for teachers
    • Evaluator templates (ETs) for evaluators
  • SAFE-T includes six types of evidence.
safe t evidence1
SAFE-T Evidence
  • Long-range plan and teacher reflections [TT1]
  • Unit work sample and teacher reflections [TT2]

  • Teacher reflections on observed lessons [TT3]
  • Professional performance review(s) [ET2]
  • Professional self-assessment [TT4]

  • if you do not pass SAFE-T, you will be eligible to attempt SAFE-T one additional time during a subsequent academic year, either in your present school district or in another school district in the state. You must pass SAFE-T in order to be eligible for certificate and contract advancement.
