Maryland's new teacher and principal evaluation system will be fully implemented statewide in the 2013-2014 school year. Under the new evaluation system, teachers and principals will be evaluated on measures of professional practice as well as student growth. The results of the new evaluations will offer a more detailed look at educator performance so that targeted and supportive professional development can be provided in a timely manner.
With this shift in the way teachers and principals are evaluated, it is important that all local school systems have the resources and support necessary to develop and test their new evaluation systems and that teachers and principals have the information to fully understand how they will be evaluated. This website provides a variety of resources on all aspects of Maryland's new teacher and principal evaluations and will continue to be updated as new materials are developed.
