Teacher Evaluation

What you need to know about changes in state requirements for Teval plans

An Act Concerning Educational Reform, sections 51-56

  • State guidelines, determined by PEAC

  • District models must be consistent with state

  • Plans must include multiple indicators of student academic growth

  • Evaluation plans must include advice and assistance of teachers’ and administrators’ collective bargaining representatives

New Requirements

  • Mandatory use of a rating system

    • Exemplary, proficient, developing, below standard

  • Mandatory training on the evaluation system

    • For teachers being evaluated and administrators performing evaluations

  • Mandatory remediation plans for “developing” and “below standard” teachers

  • Annual evaluations of all teachers and administrators

  • Development of pilot and support programs

The rating system

  • Currently, TPS uses “meets standards” or “needs improvement” rating system

  • New Haven uses five levels: exemplary, strong, effective, developing, needs improvement

  • The Danielson Teaching Framework uses four: distinguished, proficient, basic, unsatisfactory

  • CT also includes an option for a “distinguished educator” status

  • Validation procedure for exemplary and below standard ratings (third party audit)


  • PD on the actual evaluation model

  • PD based on individual or group needs identified through evaluations

  • Oriented towards career development and professional growth


  • Developed with affected employee and union representation

  • Identifies resources, supports, experiences, and other methods to improve

  • Sets a clear timeline within the school year

  • Identifies success indicators, including a minimum rating of proficient, by the end of the plan

  • State determined timeline for termination for ineffectiveness if necessary

Annual evaluations must include:

  • Documentation of teacher strengths

  • Areas needing improvement

  • Improvement strategies

  • Multiple indicators of student academic growth

  • Minimum goal setting and summative evaluation, possible formative evaluations

Pilot and support programs

  • 8-10 districts will be selected to pilot new teval plans

  • Identify technical assistance districts will need to implement new plans

  • Train teachers on model and train administrators on conducting evaluations

  • Neag School of Education will conduct a study of pilot programs to make recommendations

PEAC recommendations

  • 45% multiple student learning indicators

    • One-half based on state test for those teaching tested grades and subjects

  • 5% whole school learning indicators or student feedback

  • 40% observations of teacher performance or practice

  • 10% peer or parent feedback surveys

High quality observations

  • Observation rated against a standards-based rubric (Danielson?)

  • Result in timely and useful feedback

  • Evaluators must be trained in how to observe, score, and provide feedback

Student learning indicators

  • Multiple data points that are fair, reliable, and useful

  • A minimum number of indicators for all

  • Safeguards for student, teacher, and school characteristics, attendance, and mobility

  • Explanation for how indicators selected and assessed

Next steps

  • TPS plan needs to be revised by committee including TEA representation to add additional rating levels

  • TPS needs to adapt state rubric or develop one consistent with legislative guidelines

  • All administrators will need training on state required elements, including observation rubric

  • All teachers will need training on contents of the revised plan

  • District committee needs to identify criteria for student learning indicators

  • District must develop or adopt state model for school, student, peer, or parent input components
