Model Evaluation System Pilot Year Preview

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Goal: To develop a teacher evaluation system that could be used by any DC school and:

  • Uses what works well rather than develop an OSSE “top down” mandate,
  • Maintains focus on teacher improvement and instructional improvement,
  • Values teacher expertise—particularly through the use of Student Learning Objectives (SLOs),
  • Ensures school – based autonomy and flexibility, and
  • Encourages innovation rather than stifle it.
