Hart County Schools


Certified Evaluation Plan

August 4, 2014

Presented by Wesley Waddle, Ed.D.

Quick history of pges
Quick history of pges . . .

  • KDE/KBE Directive: PGES shall serve as the foundation of evaluation system (or develop an alternative plan which meets the same requirements)

  • 2012-2013: pilot of PGES in selected districts

  • 2013-2014: state-wide pilot of PGES in every district

  • 2014-2015: “Full Implementation” of “Professional Practice, ” meaning a “hybrid” approach in which all elements are implemented BUT only observation data will be used for personnel decisions

  • Our 50/50 Committee: see page iii

  • 2015-2016: revisions based on 2014-2015 implementation and additional updates for other certified staff

What is pges
What is PGES?

  • Professional Growth & Effectiveness System

  • Customized for Various Staff:

    • TPGES (Teacher)

    • PPGES ( Principal)

    • OPGES (Other Professionals)

    • SPGES (Superintendent)

  • Based on the four domains of Danielson’s Framework for Teaching (FfT):

    • Planning & Preparation

    • Classroom Environment

    • Instruction

    • Professional Responsibilities

Elements of our cep
Elements of OUR CEP:




Student Voice Survey



State Growth Goal

Local Growth Goal

Peer Observation

Staff Data Notebook

Evaluator Observations (3)

Basis for 2014-2015 personnel decisions

Implemented but not used for personnel decisions

Implemented for formative use only; never evaluative


For the 2014-2015 school year, all procedures that apply to teachers will be based on their current evaluation cycle to promote professional growth and comprehension of the PGES. However, decisions related to employment for teachers shall be based solely on results of the primary evaluator’s rating of “Professional Practice” using supervisor observation data. All other certified professionals shall be evaluated under the prior CEP as described in the “Other Certified Professionals” section.

Eventually . . .

Tentatively in 2015-2016, teacher effectiveness will be measured by . . .




Ineffective, Developing, Accomplished, Exemplary



A closer look @ professional practice
A Closer Look @ Professional practice


“Try to live in Accomplished but visit Exemplary.”

  • Supervisor Observations (2 mini and one full per cycle)

  • Peer Observation

    • One mini in summative year of cycle

    • Trained prior to observation

    • *non-evaluative*

  • Professional Growth Plan & Reflection

    • This year PGP is due September 1st in CIITS (Please update Appendix E)

    • Developed with principal based on survey of FfT

    • Reflections due in CIITS by October 1st and December 1st

  • Student Voice (student perception survey)

    • One per year for K-8; Two per year for HS (of ONE student group)

    • *non-evaluative*

  • Teacher Collection of Professional Work Samples(Staff Data Notebook)

  • RATING LEVELS: Ineffective  Developing Accomplished  Exemplary

More about observations
More About Observations:

  • Must be documented in CIITS

  • Tenured Teachers (Three-Year Cycle)*

    • 3 supervisor observations (2 mini by March 15 and 1 full by April 30)

    • 1 peer observation by March 15 in summative year (non-evaluative)

  • Non-Tenured Teachers

    • Same as above except occurs in one year:

      • Mini observations by October 15 & December 15 (supervisor) and March 15 (peer)

      • Full supervisor observation by April 30

    • Intern teachers shall be evaluated using KTIP for 2014-2015

  • Pre-conference required for full observation but only recommended for mini’s (may be conducted by email, phone, or in-person)

  • Post-conference required for all observations within 5 working days (in person for full; email, phone, or in-person for mini’s)

    *NOTE: Beginning in 2015-2016, a tenured teacher’s observation cycle and/or professional growth plan process may change based on the overall ratings for Professional Practice and Student Growth Goals.

More about student voice

  • ONE class (or group) of students in grades 3-12

    • At least 10 students to be considered statistically significant

    • Selected by principal after consultation with teacher

    • Must provide equal access to all students


  • Grades 3-8: one survey per year

  • 9-12: two surveys per year

  • Timeline to be determined by state window (not yet announced but goal is March 15 for Grades 3-8 and October 15 and March 15 for high school)

  • Given during the school day

More about staff data notebook

  • Addresses what the state calls “Other Products of Professional Practice”

  • Three-ring binder organized according to the four domains of FfT


  • Select your best artifacts to support each domain (think quality, not quantity)

  • The purpose is to provide evidence of a teacher’s progress within a given domain which may not be evident through the observation process, which is especially important for Domains 1 and 4.

  • Should be included as part of post-observation conferences and PGP discussions

So how do i get a rating for professional practice
So, how do I get a rating for professional practice?

A closer look @ student growth goal

  • Two Types of Goals:

    • State: 4-8 Teachers of Reading and/or Math (percentile goal assigned by KDE)

    • Local: All teachers (developed by teacher—collegial process encouraged—and approved by principal)

  • Local Student Growth Goal (SGG)

    • Must have a clear purpose, clear targets, sound design, be effectively communicated, and student centered

    • Should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound

    • Based on an “enduring skill” and include targets for GROWTH and PROFICIENCY

    • Be rigorous and comparable (“Rule of Goldie Locks”)—See Appendix B

    • Entered into CIITS according to the following timeline:

      • Year-long course: within four weeks of start of school year

      • Semester course: within three weeks of start of semester

      • Nine-week course: within one week of start of course

    • Data should also be entered into CIITS (pre-test/post-test, repeated measures, etc.)

So how do i get a rating for student growth
So, how do I get a rating for Student growth?

For summative purposes, SGG evaluations shall be averaged for the three-year evaluation cycle. For teachers with both a state and local SGG contribution in any given year, the results shall be weighted per year (60% local SGG and 40% state SGG).

So calculations for a summative student growth rating would look like this
So, calculations for a summative student growth rating would look like this . . .

For teachers having both a local and state growth goal for a three-year period, the SGG overall rating would be determined by the formula below.

SGG Overall Rating = State Three-Year Average x .40 + Local Three-Year Average x .60


Three-Year State Average (68.7) x 40% = 27.48

Three-Year Local Average (74) x 60% = 44.4

27.48 + 44.4 = 71.88 (Developing)

So how do i get a rating for overall performance category
So, how do I get a rating for overall performance category?

NOTE: For 2014-2015, only the “Professional Practice Rating” column shall be used for evaluation purposes.

Beginning in 2015 16 results may impact observation cycles pgp process
Beginning in 2015-16, results MAY impact observation cycles & PGP Process:


  • Only the “Professional Practice Rating” will be considered for 2014-2015.

  • The language in the state’s model evaluation plan for SGG is low/expected/high; those levels correlate with the local evaluation plan ratings as follows:

    • low=ineffective

    • expected=developing or accomplished

    • high=exemplary

Closing thoughts
Closing thoughts:

  • It is all about GROWTH, GROWTH & GROWTH

  • Integrate PGES with your approach to teaching (the four domains ARE the core of quality teaching and learning), and the rest will take care of itself

  • Periodically update the Staff Data Notebook with your best work

  • Remember the motto: “Try to live in Accomplished and visit Exemplary.”

  • Student growth should focus on both students’ PROFICIENCY and GROWTH in relation to a core concept (enduring skill)

  • For 2014-2015, we are all learning together: there are NO dumb questions so ask for assistance at any time

  • KDE has recently updated training modules in each part of PGES which are available at http://education.ky.gov/teachers/PGES/Pages/PGES.aspx

  • It is all about GROWTH, GROWTH & GROWTH
