DPAS-II Information Portal

***NOTE:  The information listed below is the most recent information made available by the Department.***

 

Educators in Delaware public schools are evaluated using the Delaware Performance Appraisal System.  The system, which became DPAS II in 2007, was revised in 2009 to include Component 5, which is the 'student performance' provision.  The system is remarkably complex and, each year, the Department of Education proposes additional changes.  This section provides direct links to the relevant sections of the Department of Education's website, as well as up-to-date information on proposed changes to DPAS.

Educator of Record- Roster Verification System

  • Each year, Delaware's Group 1 educators have the opportunity to complete an automated roster verification system (RVS) to assist in the determination of one measure of their Component V rating ("Measure A").  While school leaders conduct some form of roster verification with all educators as part of Component V, only Group 1 educators (and administrators) utilize that state's web-based system.  For more information (including key dates, technical assistance manuals, and contact information) visit the RVS page.

Annual DPAS-II Evaluation Reports

Each year, an independent organization performs an evaluation of Delaware's teacher appraisal process (DPAS-II).  The evaluation includes a survey of teachers and evaluators and interviews with a sampling of educators.  Data from the evaluation and proposed changes to DPAS-II are presented to the State Board of Education for review on an annual basis.
