Published: 4/20/2017 12:45 PM

This page is currently undergoing updates to reflect the changes established in Senate Bill 1 (2017). If you have questions related to the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES) for Teachers, please contact Todd Davis at (502) 564-1479.

The Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES) was created in response to Senate Bill 1 (2009) and advised by the Teacher Effectiveness Steering Committee (TESC) to promote the vision of continuous professional growth and development of skills needed to be a highly effective educator.

PGES supports Kentucky's commitment to every student being taught by an effective teacher. The PGES is designed to catalyze professional growth and create a fair and equitable system to measure and evaluate teacher effectiveness.

The Kentucky Framework for Teaching (Danielson 2011) serves as the foundation of PGES for teachers and provides a clear understanding of what it means to be effective.

Collaboration with fellow educators and administrators is the means through which teachers implement the research-based components of PGES:
