Roles and Responsibilities of the DEAC Committee
The DEAC committee (formed Dec. 2011) functions as an advisor to the
Paterson Public Schools in the implementation of the TEACH NJ
Act. Embedded in the TEACHNJ Act is a requirement to revise the Principal
and Teacher Evaluation System. Membership on the DEAC Committee
provides an opportunity for committee members to provide feedback on the
performance rubrics, program development and implementation at the
school and community level. The DEAC committee is comprised of
teachers, principals, central office staff, school board members and
parents.

Data Integration
There was a need for an internal review of the programs,
processes and technical components required to effectively
support the implementation of the new Principal and Teacher
Evaluation. This review of our infrastructure necessitated a
cross departmental collaboration to integrate various systems.

STUDENT GROWTH OBJECTIVES
Introduction to the Guidebook
w/ Sham Bacchus
April, 2013
Charlotte –Mecklenburg SLO study
Key findings:
• The higher the quality of the SLO, the more likely it is to be
attained
• The quality of SLOs increases significantly in just two years
• Students whose teachers had higher quality SLOs achieve
higher scores on math and ELA tests
• Students whose teachers met their SLOs achieve higher scores
on math and ELA tests
11
Charlotte –Mecklenburg SLO study
What principals said about SLOs
“The way of doing business in the school is the SLO
process. It adds to the spirit of cooperation.”
“Developing SLOs forces teachers to target low
performing kids and then work harder to pull those
kids up.”
“We have moved from a priority school to a high
growth school, and I give a lot of credit for this
change to the SLO process.”
12
Charlotte –Mecklenburg SLO study
What mattered most in the SLO process
1) Analyze student baseline data, for use in planning and
teaching
2) Set individual student growth targets, for both more
informative and accurate assessment of student learning
3) Participate in collegial collaboration in the development of
SLOs

Student Growth Objectives

DEAC Meeting-April 23,

What is an SGO?
A Student Growth Objective is a long-term academic goal
that teachers set for groups of students and must be:
•
•
•
•
•
Specific and measureable
Aligned to New Jersey’s curriculum standards
Based on available prior student learning data
A measure of student learning between two points in time
Ambitious and achievable

NTGS 101: Student Growth Objective Overview
Different types of Student Growth Objectives: Student Growth
Objectives can take many different forms
Type of SGO
Definition
Examples
Class-level
Focused on the entire student
population for a given course,
which often includes multiple
classes.
Focused on the student population
in a given class.
Covers all of the students in a teacher’s
Algebra I classes (Ideally the same form
of assessment covering all standards in
the curriculum)
Covers all of the students in ninth
period.
Targeted students
Focused on a subgroup of students
that need specific support.
Covers a group of students that scored
below 45% on the pre-test.
Course-level
Targeted content
Focused on specific skills or content Students will all master 80% of CCSS
that students must master.

NTGS 101: Specific Student Growth Objective
Specific Objective: Examples
The word “specific objective” would likely be used to identify anything
that does not cover your general population or is not a cumulative test
Type
Student Growth Objective
Targeted students
The average score on the post-test for the ten ELL
students who scored below 40% on the pre-test will be
at least 70%.
Targeted standard
The average student score on questions related to
Standard 5.1.12.B (scientific thinking and design) will
increase from 40% to 80%.

SGOs in Achieve NJ - requirements
• A teacher develops SGOs in consultation with his or her
principal.
• All teachers who receive an SGP score must set between
1 and 2 SGOs.
• Teachers who do not receive an SGP score must set 2
SGOs.
• SGOs must be aligned to NJCCCS or CCSS and measure
student achievement and/or growth.
• SGOs must be specific and measurable and based on
available student learning data.

recommendation to use SAGs for the 2012 – 2013 school year
