Teacher and Principal Evaluation Survey

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) is collecting Teacher and Principal Evaluation data to comply with reporting requirements associated with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and U.S. Department of Education (USDE) revised EdFacts regulations.

As outlined by these programs, each state must report on how Teacher and Principal performance is evaluated; how performance ratings are used; and how the ratings are distributed across various Performance Levels.

PDE worked with a stakeholder group of Education Association representatives to review the federal requirements and collaboratively determine the best data collection process. Based on that effort, the Teacher and Principal Evaluation Survey was developed.
