2013 CEA Annual Meeting and Delegate Assembly is April 25 – 27 http://www.coloradoea.org/aboutus/events/13-03-01/2013_CEA_Annual_Meeting_and_Delegate_Assembly.aspx
Delegate Assembly is CEA’s official policy-making body which meets once a year for our Annual Meeting.
Tell Survey results are available at the beginning of April http://tellcolorado.org/
Schools and districts that met the threshold of at least 50% participation in the TELL survey will be able to access survey results at the beginning of April. Schools will receive an embargoed URL to access data to use for school improvement efforts. By the end of April, the TELL data will be available publicly. For support, CDE will host a webinar, post guides on how to unpack the TELL data and weave technical assistance into other opportunities (e.g., use of the data in UIP trainings).
LEA and LPS leadership teams are visiting every school this spring providing Staff Orientation for 2013/14 implementation of the new evaluation system.
The purpose of the staff orientation visits is to clarify the criteria for the new evaluations of teachers on the five professional standards and elements and to build understanding of the key components of the evaluation cycle. It is important that teachers begin to familiarize themselves with the professional practices rubric and the new Draft Evaluation Handbook. Multiple support sessions will be offered to teachers to strengthen their knowledge and understanding of the evaluation standards, elements and practices to ensure a successful implementation year. What should you be doing now? (if you click on this last sentence, can it take you to this page labeled Teacher evaluation?)
