The KSDE Educator Evaluation staff is very pleased to announce that an all-new KEEP web application will be released for use in 2015-2016 and beyond!

Just a few of the benefits of the new software:

  • Ability for districts to use their own instructional practices rubrics - districts can use their own rubrics for all educators or just for a specific educator type (such as counselors) or for non-licensed personnel (School Psychs, Speech Paths, Nurses, etc.).
  • Modern, streamlined, intuitive interface - easy to see how to save and submit each piece of information
  • Work on any step at any time - all pages are open at all times
  • Formal and informal observations can take place within the system
  • Evaluations are an ongoing process - the software allows annual self-assessments and goals even if you're not in a formal evaluation year, as well as adding artifacts at any time during a 3-year evaluation cycle
  • Email notification when a part of the evaluation process has been completed - lets you know to login and work on the next step
  • Flexibility - provide feedback and participate in a discussion focused on teacher growth at any point and as many times as you'd like rather than requiring exactly three and only three "conferences" to be summarized
  • State Reporting - provide the data needed by KSDE from within the KEEP system - no need to enter information in online forms for submissions
  • Building and district summary data - get summaries of evaluation data to use for professional development and goals decision making

Stay tuned for more information throughout the spring of 2014!
