Connecticut - Educator Performance Evaluation: Educator Evaluation Policy

Educator Evaluation Policy
Policy Type: 
Year Adopted: 

Ultimate approval of educator assessment policies, created by PEAC, is left to the State Board of Education.


Beginning in November 2010, a Performance Evaluation Advisory Council (PEAC) was formed to establish the CT Guidelines for Educator Evaluation. These Guidelines were approved by the State Board of Education (SBE) on June 27, 2012 and inform implementation of model teacher and administrator evaluation and support systems being piloted in districts throughout the state during the 2012-13 school year. CT’s System for Educator Evaluation and Development (SEED) is a model evaluation system that is aligned to the Guidelines. The new model defines four categories of teacher performance: student learning (45%), teacher performance and practice (40%), parent feedback (10%) and school-wide student learning or student feedback (5%). This model system is used annually to evaluate teachers.
