Maximize educator voice and choice.


Nebraska Department of Education

Supporting Educator Effectiveness through Development (S.E.E.D.) is a comprehensive strategy aimed at ensuring quality educators for all students by enhancing teacher and principal effectiveness across the state. S.E.E.D. serves as the foundation for the paradigm shift from top-down compliance to a system of support and development of the “whole teacher” and the “whole principal”, which impacts a school’s ability to support the “whole child”.The S.E.E.D. approach is built upon Nebraska's Teacher and Principal Performance Standards. To implement this approach, the S.E.E.D. team has developed rubrics that align with these standards. These rubrics are based on the notion that educator effectiveness is achieved by fostering individual growth and development within one's own context and abilities, rather than relying on evaluative judgments. The strategy promotes educator ownership of their growth, allowing for voice, choice, and empowerment in their development journey.;
