The DC model teacher evaluation system, a collaborative project between OSSE, Thurgood Marshall Academy, and 13 other LEAs was launched on November 13, 2014. Over the past nine months, these stakeholders have convened as a planning committee, with monthly meetings consisting of professional development, language norming, and critical feedback regarding aspects of teacher evaluation. The goal of each meeting was to create a set of procedures and tools for use in the DC model teacher evaluation system. The result of this work has been the creation of a comprehensive teacher evaluation framework and associated rubric LEAs may use to assess the performance of their teachers. These documents are the foundation for the procedures, tools, and other applicable materials that comprise the DC model teacher evaluation system.
