Educators, students, and schools across our state face enormous challenges this school year. Recognizing this, OSPI, in collaboration with the TPEP Steering Committee, has issued guidance offering some relief in teacher evaluations for the 2021-22 school year.
Under this guidance, most teachers scheduled for a comprehensive evaluation would instead complete a modified comprehensive, with two criteria instead of eight, and a single student growth goal. Teachers scheduled for a focused evaluation would continue with that focused evaluation and student growth goal.
The option to pilot the new student growth goal rubrics will remain in place for districts/locals who are interested.
