NEWS:

• Principal Surveys 2019The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is collecting information from surveys that campus principals across the state are required to complete regarding the performance of first-year teachers and the effectiveness of educator preparation programs in preparing first-year teachers to succeed in the classroom. The survey results will be used for EPP accountability.

The Principal Surveys for 2019 are found in the Educator Certification Online System (ECOS). Principals will complete a principal survey for each first-year teacher on their campus using the same procedures from previous years. The Principal Survey is only for first- year teachers who went through a Texas Educator Preparation program and certified as a teacher (standard certificate OR an intern on a Probationary certificate) and taught for a minimum of five (5) months. 

Monday, June 17, 2019 is the final date to submit principal surveys. CLICK HERE to participate.
