WB OTES PROCESS AND PROCEDURES 1) Self- Assessment: 3 Options depending on your needs. 2 are included in OTES Binder or eTPES summary version. Self Assessment should be completed in eTPES by Sept 19, 2014. 2) Professional Growth Plan: Also due in eTPES by Sept. 19, 2014. Two goals are required: one on student growth and one on teaching standards. 3) Walkthroughs-Walkthroughs can be conducted at anytime during the school year. More walkthroughs are encouraged throughout the year to collect evidence for final summative rating and to ensure teacher’s daily efforts and practices are recognized on the performance rubric. Walkthroughs are unannounced but results in eTPES should be sent to teacher within two days of walkthrough. 4) EVAAS / SAS Reports should be downloaded into eTPES by October. WB OTES DIFFERENTIATED GUIDELINES Three Tiered Model Tier #1 Instructive: Evaluator directs the interaction based on assessed needs. Information flows from evaluator to teacher. Evaluator provides information about teaching or procedures Who Are Tier 1 Teachers? a) New to District b) Resident Educators c) Least Effective d) Developing Expectations: A Face to Face Pre-Conference is conducted using OTES /needs based questions. *PreConference questionnaire can be used for evidence. District lesson plan template is utilized by teacher to encourage productive discussions such as: assessment strategies for evaluating student work, providing samples of classroom discipline procedures or ways to differentiate instruction for unique needs of current students. Post Conference Reflection submitted for evidence. Tier 2: Collaborative Evaluator offers suggestions and solutions with rationale. Evaluator guides interaction without controlling it. What are Tier 2 Teachers? Teachers with designation of Skilled. Expectations: Evaluator and Teacher discuss best approach to meet needs of teacher: *Pre-Conference Questionnaire or Face to Face Pre Conference Teacher is given choice to turn in lesson plan, keeping in mind a lesson plan may provide evaluator additional information for scoring performance rubric. *Post Conference Reflection submitted for evidence. Tier #3 - Facilitative Evaluator and teacher will co-construct solutions and materials. Teachers self assesses and self prescribes. Who are Tier 3 Teachers? Accomplished Teacher has choice between *Pre Conference Questions or Face to Face Pre Conference Teacher is given choice to turn in lesson plan, keeping in mind a lesson plan may provide evaluator additional information for scoring performance rubric. *Post Conference Reflection submitted for evidence. OBSERVATION CYCLES 1) Pre-Conference 2) Observation- Within five days of observation, performance rubric will be pinned (signed off in eTPES) so teacher can view observation results and compile additional evidence for post-conference if desired. 3) Reflection Period / Collection of Evidence: A teacher can submit additional evidence at this time or anytime before post-conference. 4) Post Conference – Within 15 work days, a post conference will be conducted to determine evaluation cycle designation. Sign Off in eTPES required by both teacher and evaluator before second observation. Quality evidence indicates an “effect” on student achievement, instructional planning / intervention, and / or community engagement. Each teacher will have two observation cycles, the first one being planned by teacher and evaluator. Second Observation is unannounced. Evaluator will notify teacher through email to ensure teacher is aware of upcoming observation. The evaluator will have two weeks after the notice is sent to conduct the second observation. No documents are required before the second observation but all teachers should fill out post conference reflection document and a pre conference questionnaire, and submit them to evaluator within two days of observation AUGUST / SEPTEMBER eTPES- Log into account SGM / eTPeS- Teacher VA / SAS downloaded into eTPES.
