Professional Growth and Evaluation

Description of the Professional Development/Teacher Evaluation Model

The professional development/teacher evaluation model for the Laboratory Schools consists of three stages:

  • An Induction Stage (IS) for probationary teachers (teachers in their first four years of service);
  • Professional Development Stage (PDS) for continuing contract teachers who meet all the core expectations; and
  • An Assistance Stage (AS) for teachers on continuing contract who have been assigned by the principal or his/her administrative designee to a clinical model of supervision/evaluation.

The model rests upon a foundation of core expectations that all teachers are expected to meet. The core expectations are grouped under four major headings: classroom planning and instruction; assessment of student learning; communication and interpersonal skills; and support for the Laboratory School mission.
