School districts should strive for a teacher evaluation system which is supportive of teachers' professional growth. Such a system should be designed to provide not only quantitative ratings for administrative purposes but also feedback which will enhance teacher improvement and development. A successful teacher evaluation system requires full support of the school board and superintendent, teacher acceptance and involvement, systemwide coordination, a clear and comprehensive statement of the purposes and areas of evaluation, and well defined procedures for evaluation. Case studies examine comprehensive teacher evaluation programs in Cincinnati, Ohio; Bellevue, Washington; and Portage, Michigan. Sample evaluation forms and instructions are included. (JH)
