SPP Scores can be Added to PA-ETEP
School District Admin users can add SPP (building scores) to PA-ETEP. When saved on your district’s PA-ETEP portal, SPP scores are then made available to your building principals and supervisors when completing 82 forms. Learn more here.
Preset Management Tool Available on PA-ETEP
PA-ETEP allows School District Admin users the ability to enter and save different scenarios for the weighted percentages for the teacher specific rating calculations on the 82-1 form. Once entered and saved, these presets can then support building principals and supervisors in remaining consistent across the district in terms of setting/using these weighted percentages for specific teachers.
