 Teacher Keys Effectiveness System

​​​​​The Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) is a common evaluation system designed for building teacher effectiveness and ensuring consistency and comparability throughout the state. The Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) consists of three components which provide multiple sources of data.


Beginning in school year 2016-2017, the three components are Teacher Assessment on Performance Standards (TAPS), Professional Growth and Student Growth. The overarching goal of TKES is to support continuous growth and development of each teacher​.

​Coming Fall 2023
