Michigan school districts have been implementing and adjusting to the revised evaluation statute for three school years. As districts grapple with implementing statutory requirements for annual evaluation, a common pain point has been the use of student growth and assessment data, including properly understanding what the legislation requires, which measures to use, how to aggregate growth measures for teachers and administrators, and reliably scoring for 25% of an effectiveness rating. Beginning with the 2018-19 school year the weight of student growth increases to 40%, inclusive of state assessment data for teachers in tested grades and subjects, increasing the significance and complexity of evaluating performance.

This one day institute is designed to engage teams of school leaders, inclusive of the superintendent (and/or other central office representatives), elementary and secondary building principals, teacher leaders, and others responsible for managing student data. District teams will revisit current practice, identify areas of strength and challenge within their system, and make plans to further address growth requirements for the future. Guided discussions are embedded throughout the session for dialogue and planning.

Presented by MASA and MASSP. Facilitated by Colin Ripmaster, Associate Executive Director, MASSP
