Employment

The Employment domain evaluates a provider's performance in preparing educators to begin and remain teaching in Tennessee public schools.

Performance

Meets Expectations

What does this mean?

"Does Not Meet Expectations" means the provider received less than 50% of possible points. "Meets Expectations" means the provider received 50-74.9% of possible points. "Exceeds Expectations" means the provider received 75% or more of possible points.

Why is this important?

Teacher retention is important because teachers become more effective as they gain experience. Retaining more teachers also helps to alleviate teacher shortages.
