The TPEP Steering Committee approved the updated Danielson Framework for Teaching (2022) for use for teacher evaluation in Washington. The timeline for the required use of the 2022 updated Framework for Teaching for Danielson has been extended to the 2025-26 school year.  All districts that use the Danielson instructional framework will be required to use the 2022 updated Framework for Teaching in their 2025-26 school year evaluation.  In August of 2025, the evaluation materials aligned to the 2011 version of the Danielson Group’s instructional framework will be taken off of our website, will be removed from eVAL, and will no longer be available for use in evaluations. 

The following documents are intended to help you learn more about the 2022 updated Framework for Teaching:

The Danielson Group is finalizing the PDF of the updated framework and creating additional resources to support its use. Currently, the updated framework is available as an interactive tool on the Danielson Group website.
