Educator Effectiveness - Regional Peer Review Panel (PRP)

Educator Effectiveness

During April and May, ODE staff received feedback from districts regarding the initial drafts and the timeline for the PRP process. As a result, the PRP Guidelines and Self-Appraisal tool have been revised and the timeline for panelist selection and PRP training extended to the fall. The process and tools were piloted with selected districts during June 2014 and as a result of the pilot have been revised and are now posted.


  • ODE has developed criteria for districts to select individuals to serve as panel members. Districts may propose two to three names of individuals who meet the criteria to be included in the region’s panelist pool. It is not required that all districts identify panelists; however, it is highly encouraged as a collaborative leadership opportunity.
  • A staff member in each ESD has been identified to coordinate the process in their region. Districts should submit panelist names to the person their ESD established as the ESD’s PRP contact person. PDF
  • Training of panelists serving on PRPs will occur in September-October, 2014. ODE is working with ESDs to schedule the trainings within regional groups of ESDs.
  • Funding will be made available to reimburse travel associated with district representatives presenting to a Peer Review Panel as well as to panelists serving on a PRP.
