Educator Effectiveness Project
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, non-teaching professionals, and principals are evaluated as well as providing training tools for professional growth that provide support as part of a fair effective evaluation process.
The first of the new field-tested systems, for classroom teachers, has been implemented as of July 1, 2013. The next systems for non-teaching professionals and principals began on July 1, 2014. The Erie School District is implementing the Educator Effectiveness System in 2014-2015.
As PDE works to support the development of more effective educators in the classroom as well as those in school leadership positions, the true goal is to improve student achievement so that all of the children in Pennsylvania's public schools are prepared to enter a career or post-secondary training and become productive citizens.
In October 2013, the district launched an Educator Effectiveness Committee to guide the implementation in Erie's Public Schools. This site seeks to catalog and archive this important work.
