Act 13 of 2020 This link opens in a new window, signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf on March 27, 2020, revises the Act 82 Educator Effectiveness (EE) process used to evaluate professional employees and temporary professional employees in PK-12 education across the commonwealth. Effective the 2021-2022 school year, the revised rating system applies to classroom teachers, nonteaching professionals, and principals as defined in Act 82 and Act 13:

  • Classroom teachers, defined as professional employees or temporary professional employees who provide direct instruction to students related to a specific subject or grade level.
  • Nonteaching professionals, defined as professional employees or temporary professional employees who are education specialists or provide services and who is not a classroom teacher.
  • Principals, defined as principals, assistant or vice principals, and directors of career & technical education. NOTE: Supervisors of special education (non-teaching professionals under Act 82) are considered principals for the purposes of Act 13.

Questions related to Act 13 may be directed to RA-PDE-Evaluation@pa.gov

Questions related to PEERS should be directed to pdepvaas@iu13.org.

Effective June 17, 2022, Educator Effectiveness rating forms will be available through PEERS. The PEERS rating forms will offer a secure, stable option.
