In times of increasing complexity and educator overwhelm, one opportunity for school and district leaders to reduce teacher stress is by rethinking teacher evaluation systems. Rather than focusing on compliance-driven teacher evaluation scores as indicators of performance, leaders can instead focus on individualized growth in relevant, role-specific competencies over time. Leaders can then utilize that growth data to measure each educator’s impact and provide positive recognition to celebrate individual efforts. This would provide leaders with the necessary data point to effectively connect adult growth to student growth, which is a much more robust indicator of success.

In engage2learn’s experience of providing direct teacher support for over a decade, they have seen through measurable results that effective educator support leads to increased levels of job satisfaction and retention. As an added benefit, this support organically improves teacher evaluation scores, killing two birds with one stone!

In this edWebinar, the presenters share how to redesign teacher evaluation systems and transform educator support, effectiveness, and retention. They also discuss redirecting the focus from teacher evaluation scores to research-backed growth data. Viewers gain actionable, evidence-based solutions for customizing teacher evaluations and integrating growth data into decision making and recognition.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 school and district leaders, instructional coaches, math, reading, and science coaches, staff development specialists, directors of professional development, and teachers.
