The State Board of Education adopted model core teaching standards (InTASC) and administrator standards (NPBEA) in December, 2011 as required by SB290. School districts must use the model core teaching and administrator standards to evaluate teachers and administrators by July 1, 2013.
Take into consideration multiple measures of teacher effectiveness, based on widely accepted standards of teaching that encompass a range of appropriate teaching behaviors and that use multiple evaluation methods; Take into consideration evidence of student academic growth and learning based on multiple measures of student progress, including performance data of students, schools and school districts; Be research-based; Be separately developed for teachers and administrators; and Be able to be customized for each school district, which may include individualized weighting and application of standards.
Strengthen the knowledge, skills, disposition and classroom and administrative practices of teachers and administrators in public schools; Refine the support, assistance and professional growth opportunities offered to a teacher or an administrator, based on the individual needs of the teacher or administrator and the needs of the students; Allow each teacher or administrator to establish a set of classroom or administrative practices and student learning objectives that are based on the individual circumstances of the teacher or administrator; Establish a formative growth process for each teacher and administrator that supports professional learning and collaboration; and Use evaluation methods and professional development, support and other activities that are based on curricular standards and that are targeted to the needs of each teacher and administrator.
The Learner and Learning: The teacher understands how children learn and develop, understands individual differences to allow each learner to realize his/her full potential, and creates environments that support individual and collaborative learning. Content: The teacher understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry and structures of the discipline(s) he or she teaches, and how to connect concepts and use differing perspectives to engage learners.
Instructional Practice: The teacher understands and uses multiple methods of assessment to engage learners, draws upon knowledge of content areas, cross-disciplinary skills, learners, the community, and pedagogy to plan instruction, and uses a variety of instructional strategies to encourage learners. Professional Responsibility: The teacher is a reflective practitioner who uses evidence to continually evaluate his/her practice and collaborates with students, families, colleagues, other professionals, and community members to share responsibility for student growth and development.
STANDARD 1: CONTENT PEDAGOGY The teacher understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the discipline he or she teaches and can create learning experiences that make these aspects of subject matter meaningful for students. STANDARD 2: STUDENT DEVELOPMENT The teacher understands how children learn and develop, and can provide learning opportunities that support a child’s intellectual, social, and personal development.
STANDARD 3: DIVERSE LEARNERS The teacher understands how students differ in their approaches to learning and creates instructional opportunities that are adapted to diverse learners. STANDARD 4: MULTIPLE INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES The teacher understands and uses a variety of instructional strategies to encourage student development of critical thinking, problem solving, and performance skills.
STANDARD 5: MOTIVATION AND MANAGEMENT The teacher uses an understanding of individual and group motivation and behavior to create a learning environment that encourages positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation. STANDARD 6: COMMUNICATION AND TECHNOLOGY The teacher uses knowledge of effective verbal, nonverbal, and media communication techniques to foster active inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the classroom.
STANDARD 7: PLANNING The teacher plans instruction based upon knowledge of subject matter, students, the community, and curriculum goals. STANDARD 8: ASSESSMENT The teacher understands and uses formal and informal assessment strategies to evaluate and ensure the continuous intellectual, social, and physical development of the learner.
STANDARD 9: REFLECTIVE PRACTICE: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT The teacher is a reflective practitioner who continually evaluates the effects of his or her choices and actions on others and who actively seeks out opportunities to grow professionally. STANDARD 10: SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT The teacher fosters relationships with school colleagues, parents, and agencies in the larger community to support students’ learning and well-being.
Visionary Leadership: An educational leader integrates principles of cultural competency and equitable practice and promotes the success of every student by facilitating the development, articulation, implementation, and stewardship of a vision of learning that is shared and supported by stakeholders. Instructional Improvement: An educational leader integrates principles of cultural competency and equitable practice and promotes the success of every student by sustaining a positive culture and instructional program conducive to student learning and staff professional growth.

Requires School districts to use core teaching standards (InTASC) and administrator standards (ISLLC) to evaluate all teachers and administrators by July 1, 2013. The standards shall be customized based on the collaborative efforts of teachers and administrators of the school district and the exclusive bargaining representative of the employees of the school district.
Analysis of current evaluation system in place Is the current evaluation system a formal evaluation system? Does the current evaluation system use a formal evaluation framework? Does the current evaluation system incorporate the proposed state guidelines for local evaluation and support systems? A. Used for continual improvement of instruction? B. Uses four meaningfully differentiated performance level ratings of effectiveness? C. Uses multiple, valid measures in determining performance levels? D. Evaluates teachers and principals on a regular basis? E. Provides clear, timely, and useful feedback to guide professional development? F. Is used to inform personnel decisions? How closely is the current evaluation system integrated to the Core Teaching and Administrator Standards?
Design timeline for working plan to achieve an integrated formal evaluation system and meet District Board approval by July 1, 2013. Assemble representative teachers, administrators, and employees bargaining representative to collaborate on integration. Conduct current evaluation system analysis to incorporate Oregon’s new evaluation requirements. Prepare and begin using the integrated formal evaluation system by July 1, 2013.
