Danielson Framework for Teaching in 2024-25

Starting in the 2024-25 school year, the Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness (EE) System state model will be implementing the 2022 Danielson Framework for Teaching (FfT) as the framework for the evaluation of teaching.

  • Knowing and valuing students,
  • Supporting social and emotional learning,
  • Authentic engagement with families and communities,
  • Support for prioritization and flexibility based on local context, and
  • Alignment of the structure and language of the framework.
