|This SOW is governed by the terms of the Master Services Agreement between the district and CCG approved by the Board on April 5, 2011. It is a continuation of support for the Teacher Evaluation Data Management System (TEV) and all related analytics that support the annual teacher evaluation processes.
CCG consultants continue to work closely with Information Technology and Human Resources staff to support and enhance the system. Activities include analytics and data warehouse software design, development, and testing. The services for this SOW will continue through September 30, 2017.

The system includes teacher, test, course, and professional development data for all instructional personnel.
