Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System
The Region 7 ESC Educator Certification and Leadership Development team is committed to providing support, training and technical assistance to Region 7 districts and charter schools on the teacher and principal evaluation systems, Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS) and Texas Principal Evaluation and Support System (T-PESS).
What are T-TESS & T-PESS?
T-TESS and T-PESS are teacher and principal appraisal systems, respectively. T-TESS is focused on providing teachers with more frequent, timely, formative feedback that incorporates multiple indicators of success, including measures of student learning. T-PESS is designed to support principals in their professional development and help them improve as instructional leaders. Visit the T-TESS and the T-PESS TEA web pages for more information.

Approximately 60 districts and charter schools statewide piloted T-TESS during the 2014-2015 school year. The 2015-2016 school year was a refinement year in which TEA utilized feedback from the pilot districts and charter schools to refine T-TESS for implementation among approximately 200 districts and charter schools. Statewide rollout of both T-TESS and T-PESS occured during the 2016-2017 school year.
