Teacher Development and Evaluation (TD&E)

  • The purpose of Teacher Development and Evaluation (TD&E) is to ensure that all students have a premier education.  TD&E is about creating an opportunity for educators to set goals for themselves and work towards those goals to impact student learning.   Educators will participate in a three-year evaluation cycle with multiple opportunities for feedback, reflection, and professional development.


    Saint Paul Public Schools and Saint Paul Federation of Teachers collaborated to create a local plan for TD&E to promote educator development and student learning. An effective TD&E system was created to meet Minnesota Statute 122A.41 and includes: the Individualized Growth and Development Plan, Student Achievement, Student Engagement, Peer Collaboration, and Educator Practice  which all culminates in a Summative Evaluation.  All educators under the SPFT bargaining contract participate in TD&E.
