Educator Effectiveness Model

Great teachers and leaders are the key to success in North Carolina's public schools. The State Board of Education and Department of Public Instruction are building upon the statewide North Carolina Educator Evaluation System to create an educator effectiveness model that recognizes great educators and provides targeted support for educators who want to improve their skills and knowledge.
