Evaluation and Appraisal Services

  • The ESC Region 11 Leadership Development Team provides support, training, and technical assistance to districts on the Texas Evaluation Systems. ESC Region 11 trains district leadership responsible for evaluating educators using the Texas Principal Evaluation and Support System (T-PESS), the Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS), Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL), the Student Growth Measures, specifically Student Learning Objectives (SLO), and Impact Coaching for T-TESS & T-PESS.

Appraisal Trainings



  • Special Note about Virtual Trainings: Per TEA, ESCs can provide virtual training only for participants working and/or residing within their region OR from districts that regularly use the ESC as their designated ESC due to proximity. If a participant needs to attend training at a different ESC due to scheduling conflicts, they must choose face-to-face training.
