Educator Effectiveness - Regional Peer Review Panel (PRP)

Educator Effectiveness

Beginning in November 2014, districts across Oregon began the Peer Review Panel (PRP) process. PRPs offered districts the opportunity to examine their current evaluation and support systems and engage in conversation with their peers about what their next steps might be to fully implement those systems. Every Oregon district and ESD completed this process, and feedback from participant surveys was overwhelmingly positive.

ODE staff are working to provide supports and resources in the common areas of need identified by districts in their final summaries. As materials are created/identified they are being posted on this page as well as within the Educator Effectiveness Toolkit.
