Common Core and Maryland School Reform

What new information is presented about teacher evaluation? What aspects will remain the same?

What training do you think you need to fully understand and implement the processes mentioned?

What are some potential technological glitches? Do you see any conflicts with existing efforts? What are they?

How does this information align with the other responsibilities?During the 2013-14 school year, the state of Maryland will roll out changes regarding how every teacher and principal is evaluated.

We (PGCPS) are involved in the pilot so that we can provide feedback on how the process went and next steps.

Take a few minutes to read and about how evaluations are changing in Maryland Classroom: Teacher and Principal Evaluations.

15Student Learning Objective Framing Student Learning Objectives are not a disconnected initiative. Rather, they bring together all the essential aspects of instruction.

Curriculum, standards, instruction, assessment and data review, inform high quality SLOs

Instructional CoherenceGood instruction includes gathering data, setting goals based on that data, and assessing whether goals have been met

Briefly discuss how all these pieces interconnect and that although this is a new way to think about teacher evaluation it is built on concepts we are all very familiar with!

Talking Points:As we transition to align our curriculum to common core, we are setting new goals or standards for our students to meetWe currently utilize data from pre and post assessments, other classroom data, projects, performance and portfolios to determine if students are meeting the standards of our content areasThe development of SLOs formalizes this process16Maryland Educator Effectiveness Committee: Mandated more robust evaluation tools for teachers and administrators who receive Race to the Top funding

Student growth required as a significant factor in evaluating teachers and principals This is the State-defined professional practice framework

Reviewing student data, setting achievement goals, etc. is not new its always been a best practice good principals and teachers do this now - this has been part of the evaluation and accountability discussion for many of you. What is new is this process brings consistency of structure and expectations for all of us versus some of us.


We want to acknowledge at the onset that the process is evolving, messy and will have trail and error the pilot will help refine the process.18State Principal Evaluation ModelProfessional Practice Student GrowthSchool VisionSchool Culture Curriculum, Instruction, and AssessmentObservation/Evaluation of Teachers Integration of Appropriate Assessments Use of Technology and Data Professional Development Stakeholder Engagement Elementary/Middle School Principals

MSDE suggested that each teacher or principal create 2-4 SLOs which will focus on the most valuable learning for that content and specific instructional interval. During the pilot cycle, we are recommending 1 SLO for teachers

Note: Developing and using Student Learning Objectives is not a new strategy and is in use in some of our LEAS in Maryland.

Priority of ContentRigor of TargetQuality of EvidenceExplain how the sections of the SLO form can all be chunked into the three main criteria we use these 3 areas to approve SLOs

Priority of ContentIs this objective aligned to school and/or district level priorities?Is the objective aligned to state and/or national standards?

Quality of EvidenceIs the assessment completely aligned to measure the identified content/skills of the objective?Does the assessment provide the specific data needed to determine if the objective was met?Can the assessment be compared across classrooms and schools?

Rigor of TargetIs the target(s) aligned with annual expectations for academic growth or mastery?What data source(s) informed the target that was set?Is the target(s) rigorous, yet attainable for all students?W
