Illinois Teacher Evaluation Program Requirements

In 2010, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed the Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA), which changed how teachers’ and principals’ performance is measured in the state. The new evaluation systems in Illinois school districts will combine multiple measures of student growth and professional practice. The evaluations will be based on standards of effective teaching, with evaluators trained and prequalified to conduct observations, collect evidence, and provide helpful feedback in a timely way. Hand-in-hand with the new evaluations, school systems will be expected to strengthen their professional development offerings so that educators get the support they need to help their students improve. ​​​

Approved pre-qualifications for evaluators

As of January 1, 2019, the ISBE-Approved Pre-Qualification Training for Teacher and Principal Evaluators is being offered through the Illinois Administrators’ Academy process by utilizing Administrators’ Academy #2000 (Illinois Performance Evaluation – Principal Evaluation Training) and Administrators’ Academy #2001 (Illinois Performance Evaluation – Teacher Evaluation Training). 

Individuals interested in becoming legally qualified to conduct evaluations of certified personnel must successfully complete the respective Administrator Academy course(s) as outlined above. For additional information regarding registration and content of these courses, please contact your Regional Office of Education, Intermediate Service Center, or one of the following organizations: Illinois Principals Association, Illinois Association of School Administrators, Illinois Education Association, or Illinois Federation of Teachers.
