research on teacher quality
“ The
as the primary correlate for
student achievement is unequivocal –
teaching matters above all else,
including family income and education.
(Haycock, 1998; Peske and Haycock, 2006)
”
The purpose of the
new evaluation model

to satisfy recent legislation on teacher evaluation

it is the model many local districts are using including Montague, Holton,
Mona Shores, North Muskegon, Grand Haven, and Muskegon

provides inter-rater reliability while still including principals on walkthroughs
Inter-rater reliability is the degree of agreement among raters. It gives a score
of how much homogeneity, or consensus, there is in the ratings given by judges.
Evaluation Process
Completed by Instructional Specialist

Julie Milder will do the formal observations and final evaluations for the
majority of the instructional staff.

The evaluation process will use the 5D+ rubric focusing on the 2 dimensions of
Purpose and Student Engagement.

The 5D+ Evaluation Model is an inquiry based evaluation process and utilizes
rubrics for communicating levels of success.

Multiple options (Like this introduction video) will be made available for you
to get the rubrics in your hands and for you to interact with them.

After School Professional Learning Sessions will be made available for those
who would like more information or specific learning to enhance areas of
need.

An ongoing Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) will be created and made
available to all staff.
Principals as Coaches

Julie’s new position as Instructional Specialist will allow the principals to do
more classroom walk-through observations and personalized coaching with
instructional staff.

Building principals will perform walk through observations and will be
coaching staff based on goals and conversations based on walk-through
observations.

Principals will be observing and evaluating staff that are new (non-tenure);
and those on Individual Development Plans (IDPs). Principals will also use the
5D+ rubric for these instructional staff.

Carousel Graffiti
To capture the thinking of all the staff around the district,
all buildings are participating in this activity.
From the highlighting activity we just did, what were your noticings and
ahas, wonderings and questions, and what needs do you have as we begin
using the 5D+ Model for evaluations?
1. There are posters around the room to collect your thinking. Please go
to one of those posters now. You will want to take your papers from the
highlighting activity with you.
2. Please select a scribe from your group who will put the groups ideas
on paper.
3. Please add ideas to this poster until it is time to rotate. I will let you
know when to rotate to the next poster.
4. We will repeat this process so that you will all get a chance to visit all
3 different areas.
Next Steps
Communicate where FAQ documents, Rubrics, and Evaluation components will be
posted (FYI - previous videos sent to all staff for communication of new evaluation system will be posted in the same location)
Communicate out to All Staff the draft Observation Protocol (When, how long, how
often, process to expect after observations, etc.)
Outline process of sharing ideas for professional learning sessions that staff are
interested in having offered
Additional video communication will be offered throughout the year to help answer next
steps and questions that arise.
Phase 3: Early/Mid September Communication

Provide more information to be shared as to when observations will begin and
what to expect during, after and in between observations.
