Educator Effectiveness and Evaluation (E3) Project​

​The San Diego County Office of Education's Educator Effectiveness and Evaluation project guides district and teacher leaders through a collaborative process that includes a series of academies and facilitated intersession work that results in the development of an individualized, context driven, local evaluation system.​

The E3 project supports district teams to revise their current teacher evaluation process to create a growth-based integrated professional learning system based on professional teaching standards that aligns professional development to teacher goals and targets educator growth.
