Educator Effectiveness Toolkit - Examples from Oregon Districts
The materials on this page are working documents from Oregon school districts. They are provided as examples for districts as they work to revise and refine their evaluation and support systems. This page will be updated periodically as more materials become available.
Student Learning and Growth Goals
- David Douglas SD
- Beginning of Year Goal Setting Form Purpose: Conduct a collaborative conversation between teachers and administrators about the SLGs and PPG selected for this school year. This should include a review of context and data, as well as proposed strategies and supports needed.
- Mid-Year Conference Tool Purpose: Conduct a collaborative conversation between teachers and administrators about progress toward the SLGs and PPG selected for this school year. This should include a review of student progress, as well as potential adjustments to strategies and supports needed.
- End of Year Conference Tool Purpose: Conduct a collaborative conversation between teachers and administrators about the final results of SLGs and PPG selected for this school year. This should include a discussion of the goals, outcomes, effectiveness of strategies, new learning, and modifications for the future.

Observation and Evidence
- Educator Effectiveness e-Portfolios In this 7 minute video, the assistant superintendent of North Central ESD provides an overview of their use of a learning management system to create educator effectiveness e-portfolios for teachers.
- Specialist Rubrics As districts design their evaluation and support systems they are identifying staff whose work may not completely align with the district adopted rubrics for teachers and administrators. The rubrics on this page are samples of specialist rubrics in use in other districts. Disclaimer: The inclusion of these rubrics does not constitute an endorsement by the Oregon Department of Education.
- Administrator Rubrics
- Non-builidng Administrator Rubric (Lebanon SD) The domains and standards apply to administrators that are not assigned to school buildings. These employees are in management positions throughout the district. Though these standards could apply to any leader, they are specifically written for non-building administrators.
- Observation Tools
- Staff Meeting Observation Tool (Salem-Keizer) This tool developed by the Salem-Keizer School District is designed to be used during an observation of a principal conducting a staff meeting.
- Post-Observation Conference Tool This document, developed by several Oregon school districts, is designed to be used during an observation of a principal conducting a post-observation conference with a teacher.
Models of District Evaluation Systems
The example handbooks below are provided as districts continue to revise their evaluation systems and materials. These materials represent district implementation efforts over the 2014-15 school year and may currently be under revision to ensure alignment with the latest requirements. ODE does not endorse any particular model.
