The TED Implementation Guide provides specific information about the NYSUT "TED" system - a teacher evaluation and development system already adopted by a growing number of school districts throughout New York state. TED acts as an outstanding model: it is an intuitive, integrated system built on the NYS Teaching Standards and the NYSUT Teacher Practice Rubric, which are, in part, products of the AFT's Innovation Initiative labor-management collaboration). TED's comprehensive, systematic design and accessible tools provide a meaningful illustration of a working system.
The guide is designed for labor-management/district implementation teams, principals, teachers, union leaders and other stakeholders with a vested interest in high quality teacher evaluation and development. It serves best those districts and BOCES that are invested in growing their educator workforce to improve student achievement, and who can benefit from an integrated, well supported, research-based evaluation system.
