What’s New? Starting in the 2013-14 school year, HCPSS will be implementing a new teacher evaluation process for all teachers.
We Learn So Our Students Learn Site-based Professional Learning Modules Self-directed Resources: Professional Learning Bundles Framework Domain Courses Ongoing, Customized Supports
How did we arrive at this new Teacher Evaluation Process? Beginning in 2009, due to new Federal and State mandates, HCPSS revised the teacher evaluation process. A new evaluation process was developed in collaboration with school-based leaders, central office leaders, HCEA and HCAA.
How did we arrive at this new Teacher Evaluation Process? The new HCPSS evaluation was designed to support teachers in implementing the Common Core curriculum ensuring the use of multiple measures. A pilot consisting of 10 schools is taking place this school year. (4-Elementary, 3-Middle, 3-High School) The new evaluation process goes into effect for all teachers during the 2013-2014 school year.
What’s Changing? Replacement of Appendix D with a Goal Setting Form Inclusion of a new Domain for Student Growth Use of the 2013 Charlotte Danielson Framework for Teaching
How will it affect teachers? The new evaluation is designed to support the professional growth of teachers and the academic achievement of our students. Teachers will focus on all four Danielson domains. Teachers will select areas of focus for the student growth component. Teachers will now be rated as ineffective, effective, or highly effective.

Past, Present, and Future With a partner, discuss the following questions comparing the new model with the one we have used in the past: What’s different? What’s similar?
What are Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)? Student Growth
Student Learning Objective. A specific, rigorous, long-term goal for groups of students that represents the most important learning during an interval of instruction. Determined in consultation with evaluator Flexible and job-specific Data-rich process A definition…
SLOs and You Most teachers will write two SLOs. Teachers of grades 4 - 8 who are teachers of record for mathematics and/or English Language Arts whose students take the MSA will write one SLO.
SLOs and You Non-tenured teachers will be evaluated on Domains 1- 4 (Professional Practice) and Domain 5 (Student Growth) on a yearly basis until tenured.
SLOs and You Tenured teachers will be evaluated on Domains 1-4 (Professional Practice) every three years. All teachers will be evaluated on Domain 5: Student Growth (SLOs) every year.
SLOs and You Teachers of HSA assessed areas must align one of their SLOs to the HSA.
Timeline By September 30, 2013Set goals in collaboration with evaluator. Write SLOs. May be individual or team goals. Fall Semester 2013Demonstrate critical attributes through observation. Collect artifacts and evidence. Follow a continuous improvement process. By January 31, 2014Mid-Year Progress Review: Confirm and revise goals, processes, document progress. Spring Semester 2014End of Year Conference and Evaluation: Present documentation and reflection to evaluator. Evaluator completes evaluation and provides copy to teacher.
Reflection/Exit Ticket a question I still have? some supports I need? one connection I made today? Based on today’s overview of the new Teacher Evaluation Process, What is/are…
The April 25 th Professional Development Day will be YOUR opportunity to: deepen understanding of what SLOs are; analyze and evaluate an example of an SLO; brainstorm artifacts and evidence to support SLOs; become aware of resources available to support the writing, implementation, and evaluation of SLOs.
Support for writing SLOs April 25 PD session SLO template, guiding questions, and samples https://transitiontocommoncore.wikispaces.hc pss.org/Elementary+SLOs https://transitiontocommoncore.wikispaces.hc pss.org/Secondary+SLOs
Between now and April 25 Check out draft SLOs on the Transition to Common Core wiki: transitiontocommoncore.wikispaces.hcpss.org/home
