 Understanding my TEI Scorecard

TEI scorecards will be available to returning teachers at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 18 via Oracle. In anticipation of the upcoming release of the 2014-15 scorecards, the district has created a video titled “Understanding my TEI Scorecard.” As a reminder, a second resource video titled, “Understanding the Components of my TEI Evaluation,” is also available for viewing and sense making.

Dallas ISD’s Destination 2020 plan focuses on improving the quality of instruction and placing an effective teacher in front of every child. Without a comprehensive teacher effectiveness system, the district will not be able to accomplish its goals. The Teacher Excellence Initiative was designed with one primary objective: improving student learning by improving teacher effectiveness.

Through TEI, the district is building on research and emerging models to establish a three-pronged approach to ensuring teacher excellence:

  • Defining Excellence: The vision for effective teaching and how it is evaluated
  • Supporting Excellence: Differentiate professional learning for teachers
  • Rewarding Excellence: Teachers are compensated based on their professional growth and impact on student learning
