At the heart of an effective Human Capital Management System (HCMS) is a professional learning system that supports educator needs. The System for Effective Educator Development (SEED) is the foundational component of the Texas Educator Excellence Model (TEEM) professional learning system. SEED provides targeted and personalized professional learning for ALL teachers, teacher leaders, assistant principals, principals, and district leaders. The SEED structure aligns professional learning communities with district goals and campus objectives to significantly impact classroom teaching and student achievement. SEED is rooted in collaborative learning and focuses on the experience and creativity of professional educators working toward a common goal.

The goals of SEED are to (1) increase targeted, job-embedded professional development and collaborative learning opportunities for educators and (2) enhance support for educators. SEED is grounded in human capital, organizational design, educational leadership, teaching and learning research, and field based practices.
