• Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS)


    The Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS) is the Texas Education Agency-recommended appraisal process created to evaluate teachers and establish a system of support. T-TESS is directly correlated to the Texas Teacher Standards, and is designed as a model for providing teachers with ongoing, timely feedback and establishing a culture of continuous improvement. The T-TESS rubric consists four domains with specific dimensions, descriptors, and performance levels. T-TESS facilitates the process of every teacher being supported and encouraged to grow professionally.  
     
    Region One ESC hosts three-day T-TESS trainings throughout the year.  Click here to register for a T-TESS workshop.
