Student learning and growth means measures of student progress (across two or more points in time) and of proficiency/mastery (at a single point in time) in relation to state or national standards. Student learning and growth is evidenced by state assessments as well as national, international, district-wide and other valid and reliable assessments and collections of student work.
Educators, in collaboration with their supervisor/evaluator will set learning goals aligned to state or national standards for their students and use assessments to measure their progress toward these goals.
The focus of the evaluation system is on improving professional practice and student learning. To that end, linking evaluations with high quality professional learning is key. Aligned evaluation systems inform educators of strengths and weaknesses and provide opportunities to make informed decisions regarding individual professional growth.
HB 2186, which was passed in the 2015 legislative session, requires charter schools to develop and implement evaluation systems aligned to the Oregon Framework for Teacher and Administrator Evaluation and Support Systems. The resources on this page are provided to assist charter schools as they design or revise their evaluation systems.
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.
All school districts must begin implementing their local evaluation and supports systems in the 2013-2014 school year. The materials on this page are provided to support districts in this process.
