Kansas District Selected Evaluation Systems

Kansas school districts may select an evaluation instructional practice protocol other than the default model, KEEP.

The most common reasons for selecting a non-KEEP protocol are having an evaluation instructional practice protocol that has been locally developed over a number of years or having a membership in an educational service center that provides an evaluation instructional practice protocol and relative technical supports.

All educator evaluation protocols (systems) must include Six Guidelines ensuring a rigorous, comprehensive and fair system of evaluation aimed at improving instructional quality and student academic growth.

  1. Used for continual improvement of instruction.
  2. Differentiated performance using at least 3 levels.
  3. Multiple, valid measures in determining performance levels, including as a significant factor data related to student growth for all students and a process ensuring inter-rater reliability.
  4. Evaluation of all educators on a regular basis.
  5. Provide clear, timely, useful feedback that identifies needs and guides professional learning opportunities to specific needs.
  6. Data and a process will be used to inform personnel decisions.
Assurances of compliance and other non-KEEP evaluation instructional practice protocol information is to be filed with the Kansas State Department of Education. There is no requirement that other evaluation instructional practice protocols must provide a data repository.


All Kansas school districts will provide continual professional learning opportunities for building leaders with a primary focus of district level training with regard to inter-rater agreement as part of the evaluation process.
