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.
