ESEA Waiver and Educator Effectiveness workgroup Collaboration with other states The PRP guidelines and criteria support the work of school districts to assure educator quality through a comprehensive district educator evaluation system that: establishes a common understanding of expectations for educator quality within the district; emphasizes the professional growth and continuous improvement of individual educators; creates an organizational approach to the collective professional growth and continuous improvement of groups of educators to support district goals; provides quality assurance for the performance of all district educators; assures fair, accurate, and consistent evaluations; and provides district educators a role in guiding the ongoing system development in response to systematic feedback and changing district needs.
