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
