The forms on the page meet the requirements and regulations for the local board of education and KDE approved district certified evaluation plans through the 2013-2014 school year. All summative conferences and summative evaluations need to follow the processes and use the forms described in the district certified personnel evaluation plan.
The personnel participating in the TPGES pilot will be using the forms and processes described in the state Professional Growth and Effectiveness System or found in the Educator Development Suite in CIITS.
KRS. 156.557 requires all school district administrators having the responsibility of evaluating certified personnel to be trained, tested, and approved in the proper techniques for effectively evaluating certified school employees.
704 KAR 3:345, the Kentucky Board of Education regulation that establishes evaluation guidelines, requires that the training and testing be provided by the Department of Education.
To meet this requirement in a most efficient and effective manner, the Department of Education has entered into a partnership agreement with the Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA), charging them with the authority to conduct this training for those in need of it. The training provided by KASA will utilize the same content and similar instructional practices as that which has been conducted by the Department of Education in the past. KASA will charge a fee to participants to cover the cost of materials, trainers, facilities, and refreshments.
To obtain a schedule of training dates and sites for certified personnel evaluation training, or to find registration information, access the KASA website at www.kasa.org or call the KASA office at 800/928-KASA. The Model Certified Evaluation Plan
The Model Certified Evaluation Plan
is a guide to be used in assisting your district in making the appropriate decisions and revisions to your District Certified Evaluation Plan. All updated plans should reflect the local decisions made to support a district wide implementation of the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES). Procedures and processes for the implementation of PGES should be based on the recommendations and in concert with the local evaluation committee. Each local board of education must approve the revisions to a district’s Certified Evaluation Plan prior to submission to the Kentucky Department of Education. Revised, Certified Evaluation Plans MUST be submitted to KDE on or before December 20, 2014
. If your district has submitted an updated CEP, please review this model plan to ensure all sections have been appropriately addressed.
KDE in partnership with the education cooperatives, will host a work session to go through the model certified evaluation plan with district teams.
The dates for these regional sessions are:
SESC – 2/12, KVEC – 2/13, OVEC – 2/19, NKEC – 2/24, WKEC- 2/24, CKEC – 2/26, GRREC – 3/6 & 7. The regional PGES consultants will be available to meet with district PGES teams in order to meet the deadline outlined above.
