Traditionally the purview of districts, control over teacher and principal evaluation policy is increasingly
shifting to the state level; there is wide variation, however, in what role states adopt and what
degree of flexibility is left to districts in designing and implementing new evaluation
systems. The State Roles page provides a brief narrative describing the distribution of control
over teacher evaluation policy in each state. To allow for easy comparison, each state is categorized according to one of three hypothetical models representing low, moderate, or high levels of state control over both teacher and principal evaluation policy.
To view a short narrative on each state, click the state’s name below each model description.
