Learn how School ADvance will make administrator evaluation:
- Practical—with gradual, manageable steps to full implementation
- Professional—embedding evaluation practices and protocols into the work administrators are already doing, helping them do it even better.
- Personal—customized for each administrator's goals, growth, and job responsibilities
The School ADvance Evaluation System offers a comprehensive set of components that help drive improved administrative leadership for improved teaching and student results:
- Full (detailed) performance rubrics for formative assessment to help administrators continually improve through explicit descriptors of administrator practice
- Summary rubrics and scoring guides for summative evaluations that comply with State requirements
- Results standards for addressing student growth components
- Guides, protocols, and practices to facilitate implementation
- Training & support in implementing the System and using it to promote learning and growth
- School ADvance Basic Training is meant to be done with the entire administrative team, since they will be active participants in their own evaluation.
- The two days are a facilitated work session with your team in which you will take significant steps toward your first-year implementation.
- Participants should bring a laptop computer with a USB port (if possible). For district teams, it works just fine to have one computer shared by two people (no more than two to a computer please).
- The trainings have the greatest value for administrators who have:
- Reviewed their current goals: district/building/personal growth goals.
- Identified in advance two or three priority goals for the first year.
- Reviewed the School ADvance Rubrics (Principal rubrics for building leaders; District Administrator rubrics for central office/superintendent leaders (Rubrics are available here).
Lunch will be provided each day.
(There is also a license fee per building – MASA will share more information at the training)
