Survey Results: Helpfulness of Evaluation Program Components (if available)
Surveys are still coming in. We will review results in our February 13 meeting.
Mid-Year Evaluation
Need to change rating labels to formative language. Other wise OK.
Year-End Evaluation
Looked fine. Cautions expressed that evaluators need to provide
support/assistance before giving “not effective” rating.
Decided to use the state’s summative rating rubric for now. That
may change after pilot information comes in.
Observation of Professional Practice
Still need to determine number of observations. A standardized
observation form needs to be developed and utilized district-wide.
Stakeholder Input
Still waiting for state pilot information.
Student Growth- SGPs and SLOs
There is still concern about this area and how to effectively utilize SLOs for nontested grades/subjects.
Rating Descriptions
We will discuss this in February. Committee members were asked to review the
samples of current and new suggestions.
Ratings Reporting
Observation summary and summative form will be sent to HR.
Extra Meeting to look more in-depth at eCove and ObserverTab?
Craig will arrange for further demos and advise committee of dates.
Frontloading for February:
Stakeholder Input
How might demographic and other factors impact the evaluation (i.e. Title I vs
Non-Title I or Honors class vs. ESL class)?
Next Meeting:
