created by Bobby Brian Lewis
The new Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) consists of multiple components, including the Teacher Assessment on Performance Standards (TAPS), Surveys of Instructional Practice, and measures of Student Growth and Academic Achievement. The overarching goal of TKES is to support continuous growth and development of each teacher.
