Rubric of Effective Practices

This rubric highlights best practices to facilitate learning for students with the most complex access needs. The document should be used as a guide by a campus/district team as they engage in reflection of their current practices and plan for program growth (T-TESS Dimension 4.2). 

To aide administrators in completing the T-TESS for teachers of these students (whose instruction, assessments, schedules, and classroom arrangement may vary greatly from a traditional classroom because of the emphasis on customizing learning for each individual student), the document makes note of where Rubric Indicators may align with the T-TESS Dimensions. This document SHOULD NOT be used as the sole source of evidence for determining teacher performance, as it guides planning and growth for a campus/district team and does not focus on only the role of the teacher.
