During the 2012 - 2013 school year, our 54 volunteer districts will participate in a full year extended field test. The goal of this field test is to experience full implementation of the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System. A design team of KDE, KLA, and Education Partners will provide in-depth training in June 2012.
Data from the spring 2012 field test were used to inform revisions to the training, instrumentation, and effectiveness system processes.
The recommended changes were reviewed by the teacher steering committee and further refined for summer field test training.
During the 2012-2013 field test, districts will determine capacity as they implement the multiple measures of teacher and leader effectiveness. Data will be collected throughout the year to further inform system efficiency and policy considerations.
This page contains the resources and materials shared during the summer training and will be useful to districts as they implement and scale up the TPGES.
In order to provide districts on-going support as they field test the PGES, the following email link has been created for questions:
This email may also be used to provide particpants' thoughts and feedback anytime during implementation.
