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”
