Welcome, Teachers!

In this section you'll find information on the CMSD Teacher Evaluation & Development System. 



Teacher TDES Process

For most teachers, the TDES process consists of five evaluation events (5E) and a Composite end-of-year evaluation.  The process is designed to facilitate conversation around teaching, with opportunities for reflection and professional development built into the entire cycle.
The elements of the  5E process are: Walkthrough 1, Formal Announced Observation, Walkthrough 2, Unannounced Observation, Walkthrough 3.  A fourth Walkthrough is optional.  The Composite is not an observation event; it is a cumulative evidence view and determination of a final rating.
