Educator Effectiveness Metrics
Posted on 02/01/2017
The Colorado Department of Education will release Educator Effectiveness Metrics to the public on February 6, 2017.

UPDATE 2/6/2017: PCSD Educator Effectiveness Metrics are located in our NEW Parent Resource Section

In 2010, Colorado lawmakers seeking to improve the state’s educational system pinpointed an essential quality of successful schools – having excellent teachers in every classroom and excellent principals in every building.

To meet this goal, the state has focused on developing and supporting evaluation systems that give teachers thoughtful, useful feedback on their instruction every year in a thorough and fair manner. Data from those evaluations are submitted to the state and compiled to produce the Educator Effectiveness Metrics, which give schools and districts information that can be useful for continual improvement. The metrics are based off of evaluations of professional practice with student results accounting for half of an educator’s evaluation.

For the first time, a portion of those 14 teacher metrics and 16 principal metrics are being released to the public to show how teachers are doing as a group at the school, district and state level. You can find those metrics for our school and district on the website, then click School View. Additional information will be posted on our website at, then click on News, What’s New, Educator Effectiveness.
