  • District and building leaders need expertise and resources to create favorable conditions for teaching and learning (for both educators and students).

How is data

defined

in your

school or

district?

slide34

Data

  • CORE ELEMENTS:
  • Analyze student, educator, and system data.
  • Assess progress.
  • Evaluate professional learning.
slide37

“When evaluation systems for teachers incorporate performance standards for the instructional practices required to achieve the content standards, and when evaluation systems for leaders are based on leadership performance standards that integrate instructional leadership, shared leadership, and collective responsibility, evaluation systems serve as a lever for advancing implementation of the standards and use assessment data to realize high levels of student learning. Standards-based professional learning is the lynchpin for systems to achieve this goal.”- Professional learning drives Common Core and educator evaluation
