2 Desired OutcomesBy the end of this session we will have an understanding of the following:A model for teacher evaluation based on current researchThe correlation of BEST in the observation and feedbackThe structure of the instructional appraisal systemThe FEAPs as a framework for the observation process
3 RationaleEvaluation process requires a two-way dialogue between observer and observeeA teacher’s impact as a leader on the school should extend beyond the classroomThe primary purpose of an evaluation is to improve instruction, evidenced by student achievementThese slides present the Rationale behind the process the committee followed in developing the new system.
4 RationaleThe development of the evaluation process for any one teacher is designed with the input of both teacher and administrationEvaluation for the teacher is an ongoing reflective processIt takes more than one observation to evaluate the effectiveness of a teacher
5 RationaleTeacher effectiveness is correlated to the level of student engagement and student performanceFundamental to all we do is the underlying purpose: Improving student achievement through growth in reflection, collaboration, and professional practice.
6 GoalAll teachers can increase their expertise and skill level from year to year which allows gains in student achievement from year to year.This is the goal of the appraisal system.

10 Professional Growth Plan Development (10 Pts) Development of PGP GoalWork Plan StrategiesOutcome Measures and Reflection
11 PGP Development individual pre-conference meetings with administrator teachers may collaborate with others in development but no plan should be identicalPGP goal may continue into second year if student data indicates a need for continued professional growth in a particular areaStrategies and outcome indicators would be differentiated in year two
12 Professional Growth Plan Implementation (8 Pts) Professional Growth Plan Ientation (8 Pts) Working the PlanPeer observations are required for a “Distinguished” ratingIn-Process Monitoring
13 Collaboration and Mutual Accountability (8 Pts) Working together as a team to improve the achievement of a specific group of at-risk students.Groups may be by grade level, department, cohorts, etc.Teacher and Student groups must be identified by September 30All groups must have at least 8 students and specify learning targets and measuresPoints will be determined by each member of the group rating from 0-8 pts, each individual member of the team. The results will be averaged for a single score.
