Growth and Evaluation

Growth and Evaluation

Published: 8/7/2018 9:43 AM

“Research consistently shows that teaching is the single most important school-based factor in a student’s academic growth” (Center for Education Policy Research, Harvard University). Improving the effectiveness of Kentucky’s classroom teachers is a primary goal of personnel growth and evaluation systems. District certified evaluation plans should reflect and support Kentucky's commitment to every student being taught by an effective teacher by promoting the vision of continuous professional growth and development of skills needed to be a highly effective educator. Local plans should be designed to catalyze professional growth and create a fair and equitable system to promote and measure teacher effectiveness.
