4 4 Louisiana is transitioning to higher standards. In order to ensure all students are ready for Louisianas economy, Louisiana is moving to higher standards. By 2025, we aim for an A school to be one where students on average are achieving at the mastery bar. This means that educators, too, will be held to higher expectations. The Department recognizes that educators need increased, intensive support in planning for and instructing toward these higher standards. During this time of transition: Educators will receive feedback and an official evaluation. However, value-added data will not be produced in and Instead, transitional student growth data will be provided. The Classroom Support Toolbox includes a variety of resources to support educators in making curricular, planning, and instructional decisions. These can be used during the Compass end-of-year conversations as educators reflect on and plan for Classroom Support Toolbox Through the Compass Final Report, published in September, the Department will report on the extent to which educator evaluations reflect student progress.

School 1s educators are held to relatively high expectations: student growth is among the highest in the state, yet teacher evaluations create room for continued improvement. School 2s educators are held to high expectations: student proficiency is among the highest in the state, educators continue to make progress, and yet evaluations create room for improvement. School 3s educators are held to relatively low expectations: student proficiency and growth are low yet evaluation ratings are among the highest in the state.

6 Compass Evaluations: Reflecting on Student and Educator Progress Meaningful Compass evaluations and end-of-year conversations are an important part of the Compass process. The evaluation communicates the extent to which educators made progress with students. The end-of-year conversation is an opportunity to reflect on educators and students progress toward expectations, and plan for During this conversation, evaluators are responsible for leading conversation focused on these questions: Did students meet their goals for this school year? What did the educator do that led students to meet their goals? In cases where students did not meet their goals, what could the educator have done differently? What does this mean the educator should focus on when planning for next year? Evaluators can use the sample end-of-year agenda to help plan for these conversations. The agenda includes links to resources that will help evaluators plan for these conversations.sample end-of-year agenda 6

8 The End-of-Year Conversation: An Opportunity to Reflect and Plan 8 The Compass end-of-year evaluation and conversation is an opportunity to reflect on each educator and student progress toward expectations, and plan for During this conversation, evaluators and educators together should assess the extent to which students and the educator met expectations by reflecting on and answering these questions: Did students meet their goals for this school year? What did the educator do that led students to meet their goals? In cases where students did not meet their goals, what could the educator have done differently? What does this mean the educator should focus on when planning for next year? These questions should form the basis for end-of-year conversations. They are outlined in the Compass End-of-Year Sample agenda, which also outlines specific resources evaluators can use in facilitating conversations. Compass End-of-Year Sample agenda

9 The End-of-Year Conversation: Review Student Growth Did students meet their goals for this school year? Consider What do the educators SLTs, transitional student growth data, and student performance on state tests or district benchmarks show about students mastery of priority content (CCSS, if applicable)? Did certain students meet their goals and not others? Were there specific areas in which students did or did not meet goals? What do the educators SLTs, transitional student growth data, and student performance on state tests or district benchmarks suggest about the educators areas of strength and development? Resources SLT results Transitional student growth data Assessment data District benchmark data State test results Sample agenda is available here.here 9

10 The End-of-Year Conversation: Discuss Educator Practice What did the educator do that led students to meet their goals? In cases where students did not meet their goals, what could the educator have done differently? Consider What are the educators areas of strength and development based on observations or site visits? Did the educator use observation or site visit feedback to make improvements? What curricular and instructional decisions did the educator make this past year? What worked and what didnt? Resources Feedback from observations and site visits Compass Rubric Curriculum Guidebooks Unit Assessments and Planning Resources Instructional videos aligned to Compass and Common Core Instructional videos Sample agenda is available here.here 10

11 The End-of-Year Conversation: Plan for What does this mean the educator should focus on when planning for next year? Consider What do the areas of strength and development suggest about the educators curricular decisions, planning, and goal-setting for next school year? What learning needs to take place this summer to ensure that the educator is able to teach rigorous content aligned to CCSS? What resources are available to support the educators improvement in specific development areas? If applicable, when should you reconvene to discuss transitional student growth data? If applicable, what should be included in the intensive assistance plan?
