School Leaders and Teacher Evaluation: Learning, Leading, and Balancing Responsibilities
Washington state’s revised teacher and principal evaluation system (TPEP) represents a substantial change in state education policy. Implementing an ambitious evaluation system has impacted educators across the system, but nowhere more intensely than at the school level. This study builds on existing work by focusing on school leadership as key to successful TPEP implementation. In this report we provide practical examples of how school leaders learn to productively support the professional growth of teachers.
