Evaluation Approval Process

Educator evaluation and support systems plans or revisions to such plans must be approved annually by the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) prior to district implementation. The process will be an iterative one—between the CSDE and the district superintendent or in the instance of a consortium of districts, superintendents—until the CSDE has approved the teacher and administrator evaluation and support systems plan.

CSDE provides a model for teacher and administrator evaluation and support systems known as SEED. The SEED model serves as an option for districts that choose to implement a pre-approved evaluation system. Districts may choose to propose variations upon the teacher and administrator model so long as the model is consistent with the Guidelines.

District Process for Submitting an Evaluation System Plan

Districts must notify CSDE as to whether they wish to select the state model, SEED, for teacher and administrator evaluation, hybrid model or a district-designed alternative. All alternative models must align to the Connecticut Guidelines for Educator Evaluation (Core Requirements).

Districts that are adopting a district-designed alternative or a hybrid version of SEED must submit their complete proposal by Monday, April 15, 2013.
