Beginning with the 2016-17 school year, T-TESS replaces PDAS as the Texas Education Agency's statewide provided option for teacher evaluation.
This is a 3 day training intended for current administrators who will be utilizing the T-TESS model to appraise teachers.
Completion of this training is one of the required steps to becoming a certified appraiser. Participants must also take and pass an online certification test annually. Additionally, participants must also attend/have attended either Instructional Leadership Development (ILD) or the new Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL) training in order to complete the required steps of becoming a certified appraiser and are encouraged to verify this information with their districts.
