The Teacher and Principal Evaluation and Growth Program is based on these core principles:
High quality teaching and leading are key to student success.
Growth in practice is developmental in nature.
Growth occurs best when there are clear standards of practice supported by quality professional learning and learning-focused feedback.
Evaluation systems should reflect and address the career continuum.
The focus for teacher and principal growth should be driven by student learning needs.
