Educational Specialists
•
•
•
Educational Specialists are defined in Pennsylvania School Code with the
scope of their certificates and assignments described in Certification and
Staffing Polices and Guidelines (CSPGs).
Currently CSPG 75 through 81 list the following specialist certifications:
– Dental Hygienist
– Elementary School Counselor
– Home and School Visitor
– Instructional Technology Specialist
– Secondary School Counselor
– School Nurse
– School Psychologist
PDE is in the process of working with stakeholder groups from across the
Commonwealth to revise the Danielson Framework for Teaching to reflect the
specific roles and functions of the identified specialist groups
Measuring Educator Effectiveness
Licensed Professionals
• Given that many LEAs hire licensed professionals under teacher
contracts who are not certificated as specialists under Pennsylvania
School Code, PDE has made a decision to develop revised
Danielson Framework for Teaching rubrics for the following roles:
– Occupational Therapist
– Physical Therapist
– Social Workers
– Behavior Analysts
– Educational Interpreters
• PDE is in the process of working with stakeholder groups from
across the Commonwealth to revise the Danielson Framework for
Teaching to reflect the specific roles and functions of the identified
licensed professionals.
Measuring Educator Effectiveness
Individuals working under instructional certifications
who do not provide direct instruction to students
•
PDE has made the determination to classify individuals working under instructional
certifications who do not provide direct instruction to students as non-teaching
professionals as defined in Act 82. Given that they are working under an
instructional certification they will be evaluated utilizing the Framework for
Teaching. However, the observation component will constitute 80% and the
multiple measures component will be 20% of professional’s evaluation.
Additionally, they will not be evaluated under Act 82 until the fall of 2014.
