2012-2015 Work of Content Collaboratives
2012
2013
• Researchers offer assessments for consideration to the Content
Collaboratives
• Cohorts I & II of Content Collaboratives review/create/recommend
assessments for piloting & peer review, based on technical criteria
provided by the Technical Steering Committee
• Cohort I assessments begin piloting in Fall 2012 to determine its utility
within educator effectiveness evaluations
• Guiding principles and criteria posted on the website for designing
and vetting assessments to be used in ed. Effectiveness evaluations
• Continue piloting of Cohort I assessments & begin peer review of
assessments in terms of how the assessments function for the
purposes of educator effectiveness evaluation
• Begin piloting of Cohort II assessments in January 2013, with peer
review in summer 2013
• Begin populating Resource Bank with assessments in August 2013
• Content Collaboratives, using identified measures, begin working on
instructional practice aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards
2012-2015 Work of Content Collaboratives
2014
• Continue to refine and build the Resource
Bank
• Build out sophisticated instructional
lessons that respond to gaps in student
learning
2015
• Continue to refine and build the Resource
Bank
• Continue to build statewide capacity
• Continue build-out of the bank in regards
to instructional practices
State law requirements:
• Conduct performance evaluations for all
teachers and principals at least once each
school year starting in 2012-13 school year
• Base at least half of each teacher’s and
principal’s evaluation on multiple
measures of students’ academic growth
(TCAP, as appropriate, plus other growth
data).
State law requirements:
• Requires all teachers and principals in
one of the performance standards,
“highly effective”, “effective”, “partially
effective”, or “ineffective”.
• Award non-probationary status to
teachers with three consecutive years of
“effective” performance and remove it
for those who are not “effective” for two
consecutive years.
State law requirements:
• Consider factors such as student mobility
and the numbers of students with disabilities
or at risk of failing school.
• Require mutual consent of teachers and
principals to teacher assignments.
• Factor in teacher effectiveness before
seniority when considering district-level
layoffs.
All districts shall evaluate the performance
of teachers using an evaluation system
that includes the components of the State
Framework for Teacher Evaluation
Systems:
1. Definition
2. Quality Standards and elements
3. Measuring Performance and
Weighting Results
4. Scoring Framework
5. Performance Standards
6. Appeals
Must meet or
exceed SB
191
requirements

Current law 22-9-107 school district personnel evaluation councils
require every school district to have an advisory school district
personnel evaluation council.

Since SB 191 requires districts to implement the evaluation system
created by the State Council for Educator Effectiveness, this means that
your district will need a functioning council to do this work.

Many districts combined this council with other existing committees or
this council existed on paper but was not functioning. Implementation
of 191 can be done using your 1338 council, but it may require an
expansion of that council’s roles/charges beyond the current law.

Or, you may have a separate council that will deal with implementation
of 191, but your 1338 council still should exist and meet the
requirements of the law stated below.
At a minimum, as appointed by the BOE, said council shall consist of:
 One teacher;
 One administrator;
 One principal from the school district;
 One parent with a child in the school district; and
 One resident of the district who does not have a child in the school
district
 The council may be composed of any other school district
committee having proper membership (i.e. District Accountability
Committee, Evaluation Task Force, Professional Concerns…).
Duties of the council:
 Shall consult with local board as to fairness, effectiveness, credibility, and
professional quality of the licensed personnel performance evaluation system.

Shall conduct a continuous evaluation of the system

Element d: Teachers adapt their teaching for the benefit of all students, including those with special needs across a range of
ability levels.
There is inadequate
evidence that the teacher:
Designs instruction to
address individual student
learning needs.
Collaborates with
specialists, colleagues and
parents to provide
understand student needs.
Not evident. This
describes practices of a
teacher who does not meet
state performance
standards and is not making
progress toward meeting
them.
The teacher:
Designs instruction to
address specific learning
needs of some groups of
students (e.g., ELL, LD,
special needs, gifted and
talented).
Challenges all students
with the same frequency
and depth and monitors
the quality of participation.
. . . and
The teacher:
Solicits input from
parents, colleagues,
specialists, and others to
understand students’
learning needs.
Implements
individualized plans for the
content and delivery of
instruction.
Uses multiple strategies
to teach and assess
students.
Adapts instructional
strategies to meet student
needs.
The focus of Partially Proficient and
Proficient levels is what teachers do on
a day to day basis to achieve state
performance standards and assure that
students are achieving at expected
levels.

Students:
Actively participate in all
classroom activities.
Articulate an awareness
of their learning needs.
Reflect about their
learning and make

Students:
Seek out ways to cope
with learning differences
and apply coping skills to
classroom situations.
Share coping strategies

District uses State Scoring Framework Matrix to determine Performance Standard
SB-191 allows individual school
districts decision making power on:
How much weight or value each of the
five teaching standards has.
How teachers with multiple preps or
endorsements be evaluated for student
growth
Who will be included as evaluators.
(SB-191 does allows for peer evaluators)
What the remediation process will be for
a teacher who is deemed ineffective in
one or more areas of the observation tool
or student growth.
How artifacts of student growth regarding
student/family accountability
(ex: attendance, lack of student motivation
or performance despite documented
interventions) will be factored into the
evaluation equation.
Setting up school district personnel councils
(1338’s) and determining what role they
play in determining how teacher
evaluations and student performance
will be measured district-wide or
school-based.
