Teacher Effectiveness Pilot Project



Updated: June 28, 2013

The 2013-14 Teacher Effectiveness Pilot marks another step in South Dakota’s efforts to implement comprehensive local teacher evaluation systems that focus on supporting teachers and student learning. By providing leadership as a pilot location, schools will have the opportunity to experiment with, and inform, the model evaluation system that will be available to all districts in the 2014-15 school year. This system will encompass both qualitative measures of teaching practice based on South Dakota’s teaching standards (Framework for Teaching) and quantitative measures of student growth.

Pilot Sites

The South Dakota Teacher Effectiveness Pilot seeks to:

1. Assess administrative procedures, training and support systems associated with implementing teacher evaluation systems that are based upon both professional practice (teaching standards) and student growth (quantitative measures of student performance).

2. Identify best practices, challenges and opportunities associated with implementing teacher evaluation systems, with an emphasis on including student academic growth as one of the significant measures of teacher effectiveness; and

3. Inform any necessary changes to the model teacher evaluation system, which will be an option for districts to use as state and federal teacher evaluation requirements take effect in the 2014-15 school year.
