Data Quality Council Schuylkill IU29 September 5, 2013
All administrators should have watched. Changes for school year SIS/Data/Technology Staff
Manual – final stages of development FAQ – final review Checklist – due 9/4 – sent to PVAAS account holders
Done in January? NO!!!! Correction time is needed
Teachers co-teach classes but have no common planning time ◦ LEA Determination ◦ Cannot assume planning only occurs together ◦ Cannot account for every minute of planning ◦ Is 50/50 a fair split?
Should special ed teachers be attributed to entire class at 50/50 or only attributed to special ed students? ◦ Domains I & III responsibility – yes ◦ Sp ed teachers can have regular ed students attributed to them; regular ed teachers can have sp ed students attributed to them. ◦ Have conversation in advance ◦ What is everyone doing?
When do LTS become accountable? ◦ Define “accountable” HQT?, Educator effectiveness, Act 82 ◦ Act 82 – temporary professional employee/professional employee Check collective bargaining agreement ◦ PIMS – 70 day rule (Used by TIMS for work history) even if district has 90 day rule
70 day rule ◦ Does not need to be consecutive ◦ Must be same role Staff collection ◦ LTS that fill vacancies
1 st quarter maternity leave ◦ Still TOR ◦ Have ¾ responsibility ◦ Will sub get evaluated? ◦ Depends on bargaining agreement ***Note – Teacher of record is for the entire course***
Fill-in for teacher on leave, no evaluation, does teacher on leave get full attribution? ◦ Is LTS LT temporary employee? ◦ Can repost students for <100% but not more. ◦ Could also occur if student moves during the year
HR decides of they are a temporary professional employee They will NOT get information if they do not have a school address What is everyone doing with LTS?
As long as a teacher has 3 years of data they will have a PVAAS score ◦ Regardless of building, district or subject area
At home – attribute to “tutor” Virtually in class – attribute to teacher Act 82 – Temporary professional employee/professional employee Domains I & III – planning/preparation, instruction There is a minimum “n” count – TBD by end of October
Staff Collection ◦ Assign FTE percentages as in the past ◦ Courses – could be teaching courses in multiple LEAs ◦ ID by LEA and course ◦ 8 th math in 3 buildings will give one score for students in all buildings ◦ Instructional relationship weight # days concurrently enrolled If more than one teacher – how are you splitting responsibility?
Is it fully aligned to Keystones or does it meet each students’ specific needs? If it is a supplemental course that covers all content then yes LEAs determine which courses trigger students to take Keystones. Think of final exam
No need to report non-Keystone course of student failed Alg I Not a co-existing course Can schedule retake at any time Who offers remediation courses? Co-existing courses?
Always around state testing? Close to test time ◦ Accurate attribution data Some LEAs check data before teachers ◦ Teacher rosters ◦ All students there ◦ Relieve stress on teachers 1 week window last year – more flexibility? Does anyone check before teachers?
Day 1 of the Algebra I course to the end of the testing window
Will there be a Special Ed Life Skills State Course Code for grades 3-5 for students who take the PASA? IDK
How do you handle claiming different withdrawal and entry dates? ◦ Look at everything through your lens ◦ PVAAS will handle this If a student leaves a district, waits one month to enroll in new district ◦ Will be underclaimed ◦ Again, worry about your data
