1 The New Massachusetts Educator Evaluation Natick Public Schools

2 Effective teachers and leaders matter  No other school-based factor has as great an influence on student achievement as an effective teacher.  Effective leaders create the conditions that enable powerful teaching and learning to occur. Therefore,  Ensuring that every child is taught by effective teachers and attends a school that is led by an effective leader is key to addressing the achievement gap. Attracting, developing, and retaining an effective, academically capable, diverse, and culturally proficient educator workforce is essential.

3 Goals for today To understand the requirements for non- professional status teachers as we transition to the new educator evaluator rubric To understand the requirements for non- professional status teachers as we transition to the new educator evaluator rubric To become familiar with the components of the rubric and how they relate to teaching and learning To become familiar with the components of the rubric and how they relate to teaching and learning To use the rubric to self-assess to determine one professional practice goal To use the rubric to self-assess to determine one professional practice goal To understand new timelines for evaluation To understand new timelines for evaluation

4 4 Every educator is an active participant in the evaluation process Continuous Learning 4 Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Collaboration and Continuous Learning are the focus Every educator proposes at least 1 professional practice goal and 1 student learning goal – tams goals must be considered Every educator & evaluator collects evidence and assesses progress Every educator has a mid-cycle review Every educator earns one of four ratings of performance Every educator uses a rubric and data about student learning

5 Non-PTS Annual cycle Self Assessment Self Assessment Two Goals – (Student Learning and Professional Practice) Two Goals – (Student Learning and Professional Practice) Develop Educator Plan Develop Educator Plan One announced observation (Pre- conference, Evaluation, Post-conference) One announced observation (Pre- conference, Evaluation, Post-conference) Multiple unannounced observations (at least 4) Multiple unannounced observations (at least 4) Formative Assessment Mid-Year (ratings on each standard) Formative Assessment Mid-Year (ratings on each standard) Summative Evaluation (rating on each standard and overall rating) Summative Evaluation (rating on each standard and overall rating)

6 non-pts EDUCATORS annual cycle non-pts EDUCATORS annual cycle 1.Complete Self-Assessment using the district's rubric 1.Write Two Goals: 1.One goal related to improving the Educator’s own professional practice – tied to Standards one and two 2.One goal related to improving student learning *not to be confused with impact on student learning* (Developed in collaboration with your PLC) 3.The goal is department, level, grade etc. specific 4.Goals are SMART – (Specific, Measurable, Action- Oriented, Rigorous and Timed)

7 7 Structure of a Rubric A Continuum of Professional Practice StandardsIndicatorsElementsDescriptors of each Element at 4 performance Levels 7

8 Performance Standards Standard I: Curriculum, Planning and Assessment Standard I: Curriculum, Planning and Assessment Standard II: Teaching All Students Standard II: Teaching All Students Standard III: Family and Community Engagement Standard III: Family and Community Engagement Standard IV: Professional Culture Standard IV: Professional Culture

9 Ratings of Teacher Performance Exemplary Performance on Indicator could serve as a model Exemplary Performance on Indicator could serve as a model Proficient Fully satisfactory; Rigorous & Expected Level of Performance; Demanding but Attainable Proficient Fully satisfactory; Rigorous & Expected Level of Performance; Demanding but Attainable Needs Improvement Performance below requirements of standard; Improvement necessary and expected Needs Improvement Performance below requirements of standard; Improvement necessary and expected Unsatisfactory Performance has not significantly improved following a rating of Needs Improvement Unsatisfactory Performance has not significantly improved following a rating of Needs Improvement

10 10 Standard #1: Instructional Leadership Indicator: Evaluation Element : Supervision Descriptors: Exemplary: Ensures that each educator has challenging and measurable professional practice and student learning goals and an effective system for monitoring progress. Proficient: Ensures that each educator has measurable professional practice and student learning goals. Needs Improvement: Ensures each educator has goals, but does not vet them for quality and/or relevance to their own and the school’s needs. Unsatisfactory: Does not ensure that each educator has goals, or the goals are not of good quality. We expect that most educators will be rated proficient. An exemplary rating is provided for educators who model practice at the highest levels. Rubrics that make clear the difference between “proficient” and “exemplary” practice are essential.
