Teacher Development and Evaluation



History of TD&E

Saint Paul Public Schools and the Saint Paul Federation of Educators collaborated to create a local TD&E plan that promotes educator development and student learning while meeting the requirements of Minnesota Statute 122A.41. 

All decisions regarding TD&E are governed by the SPPS TD&E Oversight Committee.

The Purpose of TD&E

The purpose of Teacher Development and Evaluation (TD&E) is for educators to set professional goals, collaborate to refine professional practices, and reflect upon their work to ensure a positive impact on student learning. Tenured educators participate in a 3-year evaluation cycle with multiple opportunities for feedback, reflection and professional development.

All licensed educators in the SPFE bargaining contract participate in TD&E

TD&E Components

Educators participate in the collection of professional growth activities listed below:

    • Individual Growth and Development Plan (IGDP)
    • Student Achievement
    • Student Engagement 
    • Peer Collaboration (after probationary period)
    • Educator Practice
    • Summative Evaluation
