TEPG/LEPG: Teacher and Leader Evaluation and Professional Growth

Purpose and Goals

The RSU19 TEPG/LEPG program outlines a core framework, which serves as the foundation for the district’s local evaluation and professional growth program.  RSU#19 has identified the following purposes and goals: 

  • To encourage shared language around the craft of teaching and support collaboration within and across schools, ultimately fostering improvement in teaching practices and positively impacting students’ learning
  • To serve as a measurement of performance of individual teachers and leaders
  • To clarify expectations and serve as a guide for teachers and leaders as they reflect upon and improve their effectiveness
  • To serve as a basis for identifying areas where professional development can improve instructional effectiveness
  • To focus on the goals and objectives of our schools and our district as we support, monitor, and evaluate our teachers and leaders 
  • To serve as a tool in developing coaching and mentoring programs for teachers
