20 20 Great Teachers & Principals Dr. Lynne Johnson, Pillar Lead Dr. Rebecca Garland, TE Co-Chair Jennifer Preston, TE Coordinator

21 21 Tackling Complex Issues Measuring teacher and leader effectiveness in North Carolina Increasing teacher and leader effectiveness in North Carolina

22 22 Teacher Evaluation Standards Teachers demonstrate leadership Standard One Teachers establish a respectful environment Standard Two Teachers know the content they teach Standard Three Teachers facilitate learning for their students Standard Four Teachers reflect on their practice Standard Five

23 23 Adding Standard Six Teachers demonstrate leadership Standard One Teachers establish a respectful environment Standard Two Teachers know the content they teach Standard Three Teachers facilitate learning for their students Standard Four Teachers reflect on their practice Standard Five Teachers facilitate student academic growth Standard Six

24 24 Standard Six Principals must use at least two sources of student growth data Current options include: ABC growth measures EVAAS data CTE assessment system Measurable LEP objectives Piloted LEA measures Measurable IEP goals

25 25 The Sixth Standard for Teachers No teacher will be formally evaluated on the new system until he or she has three years of valid student growth data. Principals already consider student performance annually when evaluating teachers and making renewal decisions. During the 2011 – 2012 school year, LEAs decide which sources of growth data to use.

26 26 The Eighth Standard for Leaders Student growth will become the eighth standard on the principal evaluation rubric. Superintendents must use three years of valid student growth data when evaluating principals on the new system. Superintendents already consider student performance annually and when renewing contracts.

27 Effective Teachers 27 Student Growth Meets Expectations Proficient or Higher on All Standards Effective Teacher Student Growth Exceeds Expected Growth Accomplished or Higher on All Standards Highly Effective Teacher

28 Required Data Collection By School the number and percentage of teachers in each rating category By LEA the number and percentage of principals in each rating category All data recorded by June 30 for teachers and July 15 for administrators Annual evaluations required 28
