    Texas Evaluation & Support Systems
    The Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS) and Texas Principal Evaluation and Support System (T-PESS) are the new evaluation systems for the state of Texas.  They are designed to support teachers and principals in their professional development and help them grow and improve as educators and administrators.  T-TESS and T-PESS was implemented statewide in the 2016-2017 year.

     Student Growth
    Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, appraisal systems in Texas, whether the state-recommended system or a locally developed system, will need to include a measure of student growth for principals and at the individual teacher level, unless exempted under DOI or charter.
    One day training on SLOs  will be provided by the ESCs.  Participants will include campus administrators and/or superintendents, lead teachers or department heads.
