Observation by Certified Administrators

Published: 8/22/2017 9:29 AM

This page will continue to receive updates as more guidance is shared related to the changes established in Senate Bill 1 (2017)
Observation by a certified evaluator is one possible source of evidence that may contribute to an educator's Professional Practice Rating. All evidence scripted during observation is aligned to the observable indicators in Domains 2 and 3 of the Kentucky Framework for Teaching (KyFfT). The power of observation as an evidence lies in its ability to cause growth in all domains of the KyFfT when teachers make intentional changes to instructional and professional practices. The underlying rationale of the observation conducted by an evaluator is to encourage continual professional growth in teaching and learning through collaboration, feedback and reflection.

 Observation Process 
  • Evaluator may schedule the observation in advance
  • Optional pre-conference is conducted; consult district Certified Evaluation Plan (CEP)
  • Observation is conducted; evaluator scripts evidence and aligns it to the Specialist Framework
  • Post-conference conducted; evaluator provides feedback and determines next steps with teacher
