  • 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

Hopes concerns
Hopes? Concerns?

Select two “sticky notes.”

On one, write a hope you have for the teacher and principal evaluation reforms.

On the other, write a concern you have for the teacher and principal evaluation reforms.

Share each with the team, then synthesize into one collective hope and one collective concern.

What do you notice?

Teacher and Principal Evaluation Overview

The following 17-minute video provides an overview of teacher and principal evaluation reform in Washington.

Video reflection
Video Reflection

  • Role-alike partners:

    • What’s becoming clearer to you?

    • What are the key pieces of information from this video that you think your district will need/want to know?

  • District teams:

    • How might we “tell the story” of TPEP in a compelling, interesting way, for our district colleagues, to promote investment and engagement?

Esea flexibility waiver close reading jigsaw

  • Individually read your section, highlighting important points.

  • Report key points, starting with section #1 (2 minutes each).

District team discussion
District Team Discussion

  • Of the major learnings from ESEA Flexibility Waiver, which have the biggest implications for your district?

  • What additional questions has this close reading sparked?

  • Which stakeholders would benefit from this information?

Background eval management system
Background eVAL Management System

eVAL is a web-based tool designed to manage the evaluation process and documentation. Developed in partnership with the Washington Education Association, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Educational Service District 113.

eVAL is:

  • a free resource developed and refined during a year of use within the Teacher/Principal Evaluation Pilot districts

  • personalized for each district for their instructional framework, resources, and documents

  • voluntary for all districts, who can use as many or as few of eVAL’s features as they’d like (or none at all)

  • extremely secure with limited access physically and virtually to its servers

What is eval


What is eVAL?

This four-minute video will overview the eVAL Management System. This overview includes the rationale for the development of eVAL, its functions and features, the value eVAL provides to educators in Washington, and the next steps you can take to learn more about eVAL.

Eval faq

  • Is eVAL setup and ready for use now? Yes.

  • What are some of the first things staff might do in eVAL?Many districts are asking staff to conduct self-assessments in eVAL as part of their introductory processes. An additional starting place may be to have staff use their self-assessment to either set goals in eVAL on their own (self-directed) or respond to goal-setting prompts created by the district, their school, or their supervisor.

  • If principals evaluate vice-principals in our district, can they use eVAL for this purpose? Right now principals cannot evaluate vice-principals in eVAL. Check the website for the latest updates. An update in mid-late September should address this issue.

  • I can't see all the teachers (or other staff) in eVAL, what is happening?  We do not get automatic updates from EDS, so staff must log in to eVAL through EDS for changes to take effect (this includes if staff roles change, or if they move from one school to another).

How does o ur d istrict g et started with eval
How Does Our District Get Started with eVAL?

  • Districts must do four things:

  • Contact OSPI to notify Michaela Miller of their framework choices* (

  • Setup staff roles in EDS (see directions on our TPEP/eVAL site:

  • Have staff log into eVAL through EDS

  • Have either the district or school admin, (in eVAL) assign evaluators to those they evaluate



Self-assess the alignment of a district’s current evaluation system with the required evaluation system reforms, and apply these results to an action plan

Build awareness of the eVAL management system purpose, functions, and features

Team time possibilities

Whip around and plus delta debrief
Whip Around and Plus/Delta Debrief

  • Whip Around: One significant “ah-ha moment” today

  • Take a few minutes and create at least two sticky notes for the Plus/Delta Chart on your way out.

    • Plus: What was a real “plus” of today’s session? What went well and should be repeated?

    • Delta: Where is there room for improvement and change?

What s next
What’s Next?
