One Size Does Not Fit All
With over a century of combined experience as educators, we understand that every school and district is unique—and so is their evaluation process. That’s why Standard For Success is designed to work with multiple evaluation rubrics, including RISE and the Thoughtful Classroom Teacher Effectiveness Framework (TCTEF). To further enhance your evaluation process, Standard For Success can also be modified locally to fit your specific needs and requirements.

Here are a few of the frameworks and rubrics we help you implement:
Local and State Designed Rubrics
SFS has the ability to host any state approved or locally created rubric. Upon signing with SFS, one of our client engagement specialists will enter your rubric of choice, or you can choose one of our existing rubrics.
The Thoughtful Classroom Teacher Effectiveness Framework (TCTEF) is a comprehensive system for observing, evaluating and refining classroom practice.
Designed in partnership with over 250 teachers and administrators, the ultimate goal of the Framework is to create a common language for talking about high-quality teaching and how classroom practice can be improved. Aligned to key themes in the Common Core and various state teaching standards, the Framework makes the work of aligning teacher evaluation with standards easier than ever before.

In this framework, the complex activity of teaching is divided into 22 components clustered into the following 4 domains of teaching responsibility.
- Domain 1: Planning and Preparation
- Domain 2: The Classroom Environment
- Domain 3: Instruction
- Domain 4: Professional Responsibilities
Each component defines a distinct aspect of a domain; two to five elements describe a specific feature of a component. For example, Domain 2, The Classroom Environment, contains five components. Component 2a is Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport, which consists of two elements: “Teacher interaction with students” and “Student interactions with other students.” This component applies in some manner to all settings, as do all the other components. But although teachers at all levels and in all subjects establish rapport with and convey respect for their students, they do so in different ways.
