To conduct observations, educators must be fully certified. Conducting observations without full certification is a grievable offense. Certification entails attending an official state-sponsored TEAM training and passing the subsequent online certification test. Certification is valid through the end of the current school year regardless of the certification date. An evaluator that holds a certification for the immediately preceding school year may either recertify through in-person training or through an online recertification process. To register for an in-person training, register here. Online recertification opportunities are emailed directly to certified evaluators.

For questions about training or certification, please view the TEAM Training FAQ  or reach out to
