Standard VI Teachers Contribute to the Academic Success of Students
Standard 6 is a measure of Growth
Teacher Ratings Categories Teachers Demonstrate Leadership Establish Environment Know Content Facilitate Learning Reflect on Practice Contribute to Academic Success 5 Rating Categories Not Demonstrated Developing Proficient Accomplished Distinguished 3 Rating Categories Does Not Meet Expected Growth Meets Expected Growth Exceeds Expected Growth
What is the difference between ratings and a status?
What will teachers see?
Remember Status and Standard VI An educator receives an effectiveness status only when he or she has 3 years of data on standard 6 A 3-year rolling average of growth data from standard 6 is used as part of determining overall status
Beginning Teachers Effective 2010–2011, beginning teachers must be rated “Proficient” on all five North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards on the most recent Teacher Summary Rating Form in order to be eligible for the Standard Professional 2 License.
