Teacher Assessment on Performance Standards (TAPS)
component of TKES provides evaluators with a qualitative,
rubrics-based evaluation method for measuring teacher
performance related to ten quality performance standards
that are scored from 0 to 3. (sum score can range from 0-30)


Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) measure of student growth for core
state-tested subjects. A growth percentile can range from 1 to 99.

In 2014, SGPs were produced for the CRCTs (grades 4-8 reading, ELA,
math, science, and social studies) and EOCTs.

In 2014, the mean SGP performance for all tested courses taught by the
teacher was used in calculating the TEM.
9

SLOs have been developed by APS for all teachers of nontested courses. (e.g., art, music, physical education)

About three-fourths of APS teachers teach non-tested subjects
for at least some portion of the instructional day.

In 2013-2014, all teachers of non-tested courses were required
to have at least one growth measure.

In 2014-2015, all teachers must have two growth measures.
They may be a combination of SGP (i.e., Georgia Milestones)
and SLO courses.

In order to fulfill this requirement, APS has developed over 300
SLO assessments.



The target for individual student growth is 30%.
The target for a teacher is 80%. (i.e., of students making 30% growth)

Overall TAPS Rating

As noted, the Teacher Effectiveness Measure rating scale has four levels:
Exemplary, Proficient, Needs Development, or Ineffective.
13

LKES has three dimensions: LAPS, Student Growth, and Gap Reduction.

The Leader Effectiveness Measure (LEM) has the same four levels as the teacher
scale: Exemplary, Proficient, Needs Development, or Ineffective.
14

LKES has three dimensions: LAPS, Student Growth, and Gap Reduction.

The Leader Effectiveness Measure (LEM) has the same four levels as the teacher
scale: Exemplary, Proficient, Needs Development, or Ineffective.


In 2010, the State of Georgia received $400 million in
competitive Race-to-the-Top (RT3) grant funds to
promote student growth.

Atlanta Public Schools is one of Georgia’s 26 Race-tothe-Top (RT3) districts.

As a participant APS aligned to Georgia’s RT3 scope of
work and received $39 million RT3 funds.


Merit pay is a GA RT3 scope of work requirement that
RT3 districts provide a one-time payment to individual
teachers and school administrators based on student
growth and overall performance.

As an RT3 district, APS allocated $1,565,000 for merit
pay from the initial $39 million provided by the
GADOE.

APS must spend all of the set-aside allocation for merit
pay on individual teachers and school administrators.
18
The $1,565,000 allocated for merit pay will be disbursed in three tiers.
Tier 1: We are required by the GADOE to pay teachers ($2500)
and administrators ($2300) a set amount based on individuals
scoring in the top 10% of the Teacher Effectiveness Measure
(TEM) and Leader Effectiveness Measure (LEM) of the district.
Tier 2: The district will pay $2500 to teachers who receive a Level
IV on the TAPS summative rating and do not have a TEM score.
Tier 3: Remaining funds will be evenly distributed in an amount no
less than $1000 to teachers who score in the next grouping of
highest scoring teachers (11%-30%) on TEM.
