The Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program

District Leaders

Instructional and Leadership Frameworks
A framework is a common language and vision of what quality teaching and leading looks like. All districts are required to select both an instructional and a leadership framework to use when evaluating their teachers and principals. The frameworks have common themes tying the criteria for teachers and principals together.

Student Growth
Student growth is an important part of the teacher evaluation process. OSPI provides a rubric for student growth as well as some samples, from teachers across that state, of what student growth might look like.

Training Modules
The training modules focus on professional learning for TPEP and the state eight criteria.

District Training Funding
OSPI provides funding to districts to train teachers and administrators.

Decision Making
The State vs. District Decision Matrix explains what TPEP decisions are required by the state and what decisions are made at the district level.

Research and Reports
A variety of research and reports has been published about the WA TPEP program. This page also includes School Employee Evaluation data.

Approved TPEP Training Providers
OSPI has developed a statewide cadre of framework trainers whose services are available through the local ESD or on a consulting basis.
