Compass is the state’s educator support and evaluation system designed to provide all educators with regular, meaningful feedback on their performance. This system promotes a cycle of continuous improvement by providing aligned resources that guide educators throughout the year.

Under this system, every teacher and school leader in each public school is evaluated annually using a four-tiered rating – Highly Effective, Effective: Proficient, Effective: Emerging, and Ineffective.  Half of the evaluation is based on achievement of student learning targets and half of the evaluation is based on observations by their supervisor using the appropriate Compass rubric.
