Why is change necessary?

Three Primary Drivers
1. National Mandates – NCLB and State Waivers
2. Code of Virginia School boards shall develop a procedure
for use by division superintendents and principals in evaluating
instructional personnel that is appropriate to the tasks performed
and addresses, among other things, student academic progress
and the skills and knowledge of instructional personnel, including,
but not limited to, instructional methodology, classroom
management, and subject matter knowledge.
Article 2, paragraph 22.1-295
Three Primary Drivers
3. Connections Between Student Success,
Teacher Improvement, and Teacher Evaluation
“Teachers have the greatest impact on student
success.”
“Without capable highly effective teachers, in America’s
classrooms, no educational reform effort can possibly
succeed.”
“ Moreover, without highly quality evaluation systems,
we cannot know if we have quality teachers.”
(Quotes from forward of FCPS Teacher Evaluation
Handbook, Dr. James H. Strong , August 2012)
Virginia and NCLB Reform
• Virginia requests waiver from US Department
of Education
• Key to VDOE request
Implement a New evaluation process that
would include rigorous new content
standards and assessments to close
achievement gaps
• FCPS Teacher Evaluation Task Force Formed
September 2011 to June 2012
Virginia and NCLB Reform
• June 29, 2012 – DOE Waiver: Virginia school
divisions will no longer have to meet the
arbitrary and unrealistic NCLB benchmarks
or AYP
• VDOE Mandate - Effective July 1, 2012
All school systems are to implement a new
teacher evaluation process – containing
seven standards, with Standard 7 - Student
Progress weighted 40%
“In FCPS all schools will build professional
learning communities that employ best
practices to raise the bar and close
achievement gaps.
All educators will use the Program of Studies
to ensure all students reach their full
potential with an expectation that students
will read on grade level and graduate on
time.”
-Jack D. Dale 8.8.12
Aligning the VDOE Mandate
with the FCPS Expectation
• Teacher Evaluation Task Force - - - goal to
comply with state mandate and customize a new
FCPS Teacher Evaluation Program
• Development of a NEW Teacher Evaluation
Program Handbook
• Creation of Teacher Evaluation Training Plan
(16,000 teachers and 600+ evaluators)
Training Plan
Primary Purpose of the FCPS’s
Teacher Performance
Evaluation Program
“To help both teachers and their evaluators collect
more comprehensive and accurate assessment
data for rating teacher effectiveness and, then to
support quality teaching everyday in every
classroom.” (Quote from forward of FCPS Teacher Performance
Evaluation Handbook, Dr. James H. Strong,
August 2012)
Take a look at the Crosswalk
What are the changes?
•
•
•
•
•
Seven standards instead of five
Standard 7 is Student Academic Progress
Matrices are used to rate the teacher
Four rating levels, as opposed to three
A minimum of one formal and three informal/miniobservations
• In addition to the goal-setting conference and
documentation log, evaluators are required to collect a
minimum of four data sources
• Final evaluation conference between the evaluator and
teacher is required for teachers in their summative
evaluation year

What are the Purposes of
Student Achievement Goal Setting?
 Focus on student results
 Explicitly connect teaching and learning
 Improve instructional practices and
teacher performance
 Tool for school improvement
Student Achievement Goal Setting
• Student Achievement Goal Setting used for both teachers of tested and
non-tested grades and subjects
• Percentage of Standard 7 weight is 40%
• Appropriate measures of academic progress are determined
• During first month of school, all teachers will work collaboratively with
grade level or content team to create a SMARTR goal. Each teacher will
fine-tune the goal to reflect the needs of their respective learners The
goal will be approved by evaluator by the end of October
• Midyear review of student progress goal and modify strategies with
administrator (summative evaluation year only)
• End-of-year review of goal attainment (all teachers)
• Quality of the goals and their attainment provide an important data source
for evaluation

• What are the benefits and challenges to
measuring achievement?
Progress
Benefits:
• Takes into account the diversity of learners
• Shows growth even when students haven’t
made a particular cut score
Challenges:
• Requires more time to document
• If enough progress is made, students will never
achieve at high levels
Achievement
Benefits:
• Ensures that all students are receiving a high
level of education
• Students need prerequisite knowledge before
moving to the next level
Challenges:
• Not all students start in the same place
• Not all students learn at the same rates

Professional’s Name: Teacher H
Worksite Yourtown High School Job Title: English Teacher
School Year 2012- 13
I. Setting (Describe the population and
special learning circumstances)
This goal is based on one of my English Grade 10 classes which has 30 students. Five
of the students qualify for special services and have IEPs.
II. Content/Subject/Field Area (The
area/topic addressed is based on learner
achievement, data analysis, or observational
data)
I will focus on essay writing. Our school is focusing on increasing writing scores. Over
the past three years, the percent passing has been 74 percent 78 percent, and 81
percent. We are seeing a positive trend in writing and will continue to focus on this
area.
III. Baseline Data (What does the current
data show?)
I administered a writing prompt at the beginning of the year and used a four-point
rubric to score the responses, scoring both according to critical element and
holistically. The data indicate that six students scored at performance level 1, 11
students scored at performance level 2, ten students scored at performance level 3,
and three students scored at performance level 4.
 Data attached
IV. Goal Statement (Describe what you want
learners/program to accomplish)
For the current school year, 100 percent of my students will make measurable
progress in writing. Students scoring at a “1” will increase by two performance levels.
Students scoring at a “2” or “3” will increase by one performance level. Students
scoring at a “4” will maintain high performance.

Sample SMARTR Goal
By the end of the school year, each student will make measurable
progress in the target language acquisition based on the 4th
grade benchmark on the FCPS Jr. Performance Guidelines.
Students currently scoring almost meets expectations will
increase their level of performance to meet expectations, while
students who are currently meeting expectations will increase
their level of performance to exceeds expectations.
In order to measure meaningful gains along the target language
acquisition continuum for students who currently exceed
expectations, the 5th grade benchmark will be used to measure
their progress. At least 25% of the students who are currently
scoring exceeds expectations will be able to exceed expectations
on the 5th grade benchmark.
Sample SMARTR Goal
 Strategic & Specific: Focuses on language
acquisition skills
 Measurable: Measured by a benchmark
assessment
 Attainable: Tiered goal so that all students make
progress
 Results-Oriented: Based on results of an
assessment
 Time-bound: By the end of the school year
 Rigorous: The goal challenges all students
Examining Goals
• Each group will have
one goal
• Determine whether it
is SMARTR and
underline each of the
components
• If the goal could be
improved, rewrite it
A good goal statement is
one that is…

Strategic & Specific

Measurable


Time-bound

Rigorous
One Example
• By March, all students will make measureable progress in
the area of written expression and usage and mechanics.
For each reporting category, using the school developed
rubric, all students will improve, at least one point within
each reporting category;
–
–
–
–
–
Students with a score point of 1 will increase to a score point of 3.
Students with a score point of 2 will increase to a score point of 3.
Students with a score point of 3 will increase to a score point of 4.
Students with a score point of 4 will maintain high performance.
Students with a score point of 4 in both reporting categories will
begin writing in another genre.
