• Alternative Educator Evaluation System/Renewal Process

    Due the current situation that we are in with both COVID and the state’s transition to a new teacher evaluation system, renewal applications will be suspended until 3/01/2022 and therefore, all alternative system approvals will be extended until that time.

    Please note that the renewal application will be updated with additional requirements that will align with the raised expectations of the new state teacher evaluation system that has a heavy focus on teacher impact on student learning. In order to assist all alternative systems with meeting those requirements, we will be providing technical assistance and an overview of the renewal application rubric and process on August 9th from 10-12 and August 10th from 1-3. It is required that a representative from your school attend one of the sessions in order to receive your application to renew. You can register now in PDMS for course #29649.

    In summation please note the following timeline.

    • August 9, 10, 2021-Technical assistance from DOE
    • October 1, 2021-Intent to renew due
    • March 1, 2022-Applications due
    • June 1, 2022-Application final approvals due
