• Teacher Principal Evaluation Project

    The Teacher Principal Evaluation Project (TPEP) is Washington state's evaluation process for teachers and principals.

    The state legislature established eight criteria as measures for evaluating all teachers in the 295 districts in the state of Washington.  The Washington State eight criteria are the same in every district in the state.  Everett Public Schools uses the Danielson Framework to provide the descriptors for the eight criteria.

    New hires to Everett Public Schools are required to attend professional development that focuses on the components of the teacher evaluation process.  The TPEP evaluation process is divided into four sessions and each session is offered twice in the same day to accommodate those teachers choosing to attend during the school day or those choosing to attend after school hours with compensation.  In addition, the sessions are leveled to customize the information for secondary or elementary teachers.
