  • Engagement in formative discussions with leadership about progress and summative evaluations that determine effectiveness

  • Application of professional learning designs aligned to the Professional Learning Standards

  • Promotion of self-directed growth in educators and career pathways for teacher leaders that lead to an improvement in all educators’ overall job performances
