The Illinois Teacher Evaluation and Development Program seeks to provide the information and support necessary so that each district will be able to design and implement a teacher evaluation system in every Illinois school district.

The Joint Committees’ goals will be to discuss and develop a new evaluation system of teacher evaluation including ways to incorporate and use data and indicators of student growth as a significant factor in rating teacher performance into the district’s teacher evaluation system, and to support its effective implementation and use. This document, as well as other online resources provided by the ITED Project Team, will support the Joint Committees’ work in developing this system.
