Teacher Development and Evaluation

Minnesota law requires districts to develop and evaluate teachers (Minn. Stat,, § 122A.40, Subd. 8, and § 122A.41, Subd. 5) to improve instruction, as well as to increase student learning and success. Minnesota charter schools must also evaluate teachers with evaluation and development processes that meet state guidelines.

The Division of School Support offers technical assistance, planning assistance and implementation support to local districts and charters. Our goal is to help you create meaningful, transparent, and accurate development and evaluation models.

Tools, resources, and state example models for teachers and principals are available to help districts implement educator evaluation and professional development. Choose a topic-specific page at left to learn more.
