NOW is the time for your opinion to count!

TEA has released proposed legislation governing the T-TESS. Please review and submit your comments. This ruling will directly effect your teacher evaluation starting next school year.

Summary: The proposed repeal and new rules would reflect changes to the state-recommended teacher appraisal system by replacing the current state-recommended teacher appraisal system, the Professional Development Appraisal System (PDAS), effective July 1, 2016, with a new state-recommended teacher appraisal system, the Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS).

Public Comment Period: December 11, 2015 - January 11, 2016.

Earliest Possible Date of Adoption: January 11, 2016.

Proposed Effective Date: July 1, 2016.
