    All teachers must have District-Provided T-TESS orientation by a T-TESS certified appraiser at the first available date following their employment. See page 5 of the T-TESS Manual. The dates are provided in the manual and on the T-TESS Calendar.

    Due to COVID-19 and TEA district waivers the last two years, most teachers will be required to have a formal observation to complete the evaluation cycle in 2021-2022. Please see page 10 of the guidance document for more information.
