About TPEP

What is TPEP?

The Teacher and Principal Evaluation Project (TPEP) is part of a broad education reform bill passed by the Washington State Legislature in 2010. The law establishes that teachers and principals will be evaluated based on a four-tiered system.

What are the core principles of TPEP?

  • Quality teaching and leading is critically important.
  • Professional learning is a key component of an effective evaluation system.
  • Teaching and leading is work done by a core team of professionals.
  • Evaluation systems should reflect and address the career continuum.
  • An evaluation system should consider and balance “inputs or acts” with “outputs or results.”
  • Teacher and principal evaluation models exist within the complex relationship between district systems and negotiations.
