NC Educator Evaluation System (NCEES)

Truenorthlogic Logo NCEES is the official Home Base application used by public and charter schools of North Carolina for storing and managing educator effectiveness.  NCEES offers components designed to support the ongoing professional growth of K-12 educational leaders and teachers. This tool includes educator evaluation and professional development.

  • Educator Evaluation instruments are based on the Framework for 21st Century Learning and the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards. The instruments are designed to promote effective leadership, quality teaching, and student learning while enhancing professional practice and leading to improved instruction.
  • Professional Development is designed to help equip educators with the tools and skills they need to improve student achievement. These online modules and courses are designed to offer flexible delivery and pacing, to model best practices in online learning design and instruction, and to provide a means of collaboration and discussion among educators across the state.

This associated site encompasses training resources, system updates, and events for the user-base audience. To learn more about this application, visit the NCEES Resources page.
