Audience:  K-12 Administrators

Presenters:  Steve Oertle and Angela Reeter

This is the one required student growth retraining course for principal and teacher evaluators who are renewing their designations required to evaluate staff.  

Evaluators will be required to participate in a pre-session webinar that will review Part 50 Administrative Rules as they relate to student growth.  

Participants will learn how to:

1.       Use assessments and measurement models identified by the joint committee in determining the student growth attributable to individual teachers/principals and understand how different types of assessments are used for measuring growth;

2.       Use data from the evaluation rubric, other evidence collected, and best practices relative to evaluating student growth to link teacher/principal and school-level professional development plans to evaluation results;

3.       Create, in collaboration with teachers/principals, supportive, targeted professional development plans that consider past results, contribute to professional growth, and assist teachers/principals in aligning professional development and goal-setting to school improvement goals; and

4.       Communicate evaluation outcomes and findings in constructive and supportive ways that enable teachers/principals to set goals and improve practice.

NOTE:  Participants will have one week following the Academy to complete their A/D Component and send their completed E-Template to the presenter for review and comment.

  AA #1451 Teacher Evaluator Competency Skill Building for Pre-Qualified Teacher Evaluators (6_8_2018)
 Location: Mannie Jackson Center
 08:30 AM - 03:30 PM
200.00 30 1 29

Audience:  K-12 Administrators

Presenters:  Marvin Warner of ROE 41 and Angela Reeter of ROE 3.

Administrators who evaluate teachers must demonstrate a high rate of inter-rater reliability, and communicate evaluation outcomes in constructive and supportive ways. Administrators who evaluate teachers must also recognize and control for bias when conducting an evaluation and determining results.  School districts in Illinois must provide professional development to administrators to strengthen these skills on a sustained basis.  

This course focuses on Domains 1 and 4, and is intended to move administrators who have passed the ISBE evaluator training, and who are very familiar with Charlotte Danielson's 2011/2013 Framework for Teaching, from compliance to competency.
