Educator Evaluation

Every student must have highly effective teachers.
Every school must have highly effective leaders & support professionals.
We must support educators throughout their careers.

Educator excellence is essential to improving student achievement. Educator excellence begins with clear standards for educator practice.  Improvement of achievement requires implementing strong practices in recruiting, developing, recognizing, and retaining talented and demonstrably successful staff in LEAs.

Transition from EPSS to Employee Evaluation Management (EEM)

Rhode Island districts who use EPSS will transition to a new Frontline system called Employee Evaluation Management (EEM) for the 2017-18 school year. On July 25, 26, and 27, Frontline provided training on the new system to both District Configuration Administrators (DCAs) and evaluators. Since some could not attend these trainings, the following materials are provided to support this transition. Please note that we will continue to update this page as additional resources become available.

Statewide Report on Education Evaluation Data

As a state, we are focused on enriching the conversations related to instruction and student learning. And as part of our commitment to ongoing transparency regarding educator evaluation data and changes to our models, we have released a report from the 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years. This report captures general model use and educator final effectiveness ratings and student learning ratings.
