Educator Effectiveness

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has been working since 2010 to develop an educator effectiveness model that will incorporate those attributes that are most critical to the way teachers, principals, and non-teaching professionals are evaluated as well as providing training tools for professional growth that provide support as part of a fair effective evaluation process.

The goal of the Educator Effectiveness System is to ensure that students have an effective teacher in their classrooms and effective leadership in every building.  
This website will provide up-to-date information and resources regarding the Educator Effectiveness System.
