We are thrilled to announce the summer 2024 launch of a new and improved version of our teacher evaluation software – PAETEP! The new version of PAETEP will provide users with a more robust user experience, incorporating a dynamic interface, enhanced security protocols, and streamlined navigation, all embedded within a contemporary digital platform.

Since the inception of PAETEP 12 years ago, Edulink has collaborated with educators across the state, as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Education, to build a tool that meets their needs and is 100% aligned to Educator Effectiveness mandates. Today, over 500 LEAs (school districts, intermediate units, career technical centers, charter schools, and private schools) and 100,000 educators across the state now use PAETEP. Feedback from users has been incorporated into the new version of PAETEP, such as consistent location of action buttons, easier access to information, multi-factor authentication, single sign-on capabilities, and upgraded reporting. Check out the new features and benefits!

Here are some of the things our beta users have said about the NEW PAETEP:

“I think the layout and general workflow has improved. Teachers have reported an easy transition and no issues.”
Matthew Nebzydoski

Principal of Instruction/Technology/Safety, Blue Ridge School District

“The PA-ETEP beta upgrade has been a seamless transition from the Legacy site. It is more convenient than the legacy version in that you can get an overview of what has been submitted and completed for all your teachers on the Supervision Management page. It is easier to navigate and easier to track observations. Additionally, the customer service has been very responsive to any questions or support needs.”
Shawn Cruice

Principal, West Chester Area School District

I wanted to express my appreciation for the new PAETEP tool. It has truly been a game-changer. The user-friendly interface and intuitive design have significantly improved the overall experience. Navigating through the site is a breeze, thanks to its cleanliness and well-organized sections. It’s refreshing to see how easy it is to identify tasks and quickly understand what needs attention or assistance. The layout promotes efficiency, allowing for a seamless navigation process. The tool’s user-friendliness has not only saved time but has also contributed to a more positive workflow. The clean design makes it easy to focus on essential tasks without unnecessary distractions.
