Professional Growth System PDPsGetting Started
Teacher Needs Assessment Self –Assessment is a new section this year and helps teachers focus on areas of growth and professional development. The self-assessment is the teacher evaluation observation rubric.
Teacher Needs Assessment Teachers should honestly indicate their level of proficiency on each element on the rubric. The self assessment will not be reflected in the final evaluation scoring. Areas of weakness should be considered as teachers write their teacher needs goal on the PDP.
PDP Goals Student Goal –Evaluate current student data –Target a specific content area of need –Target a specific group of students –Use standardized tests as your main measure when available
PDP Goals Teacher Goal –Self-Assessment Data –Student Data Needs –Teacher Certification Needs –School Improvement Needs
Professional Development Needs Assessment On PGS using the drop-down menu select no more than 3 training areas that will help teachers meet their student and teacher goals
Reflection/Tracking Progress On PGS/Section 11, Step 3 (NEW) –At the end of the 2 nd nine weeks of school, teachers will complete section 11, step 3 by reflecting on Deliberate Practice (training they have attended and instructional changes they have made) and the data resulting from the Deliberate Practice.
