Big Bend National Board Cohort

What is National Board?

National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) is a not-for-profit professional organization, created and governed by practicing teachers and their advocates. National Board believes higher standards for teachers mean better learning for students. National Board Certification validly and reliably identifies when teachers meet the standards for accomplished teaching, that were developed by teachers with the NBPTS.

Texas Educator Excellence
Management System (TEEMS)

Data Management of Student Growth Measures, Educator Evaluation, Performance Evaluation, Talent Acquisition & Professional Learning

TEEMS can be used by Texas school districts to accomplish the following goals:

  • Utilize the TxCEE SGM Process to effectively manage and analyze your Student Growth Measure (SGM) data.
  • Simplify educator evaluations with our all-in-one solution including T-TESS/T-PESS, video upload, scripting capabilities, and a clear process for yearly evaluations.
  • Calculate educator effectiveness ratings using multiple measures
  • Calculate performance-based compensation amounts using multiple measures
  • Support professional learning communities

Every day in Texas classrooms educators are tasked with the challenge of setting rigorous academic standards based on varied educational data elements. School districts need support in making meaning from the ever-increasing supply of educational data, and transforming this data into information that can easily and effectively inform a variety of critical decisions.

With the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education, TxCEE developed the Texas Educator Excellence Management System (TEEMS). TEEMS supports the human capital needs of Texas school districts in an intuitive, easy-to-use, and functionally robust manner. TxCEE’s approach empowers district and school administrators to invest in educators and make data-driven decisions to improve effectiveness and student performance.

TEEMS informs a variety of human capital decisions such as educator evaluation, retention, promotion, dismissal, compensation, leadership potential, and professional development. These components of the data management system assist districts and campuses in their efforts to improve instruction in the classroom, improve administrator leadership, and develop structures that support educator effectiveness-particularly teachers and principals.
