Teacher Effectiveness Measure – Helping Teachers Grow

The Teacher Effectiveness Measure (TEM) is the teacher evaluation system implemented in Shelby County Schools (SCS) system. The purpose of the TEM evaluation system is to ensure that all educators receive honest feedback about their practice to enable continuous improvement in their practice and ultimately high quality instruction for our students.

The Teacher Effectiveness Measure (TEM) is more than an evaluation system; it is designed to help educators become more successful by giving regular, meaningful insights about their practice. The Districts goal in implementing the TEM is to ensure that educators always know where they stand and what they need to do to improve their teaching practice.
