EA Trains Educators and Administrators on Student Growth Metrics
EA professional development experts were in Lombard, IL training local school district staff on student growth metrics this week.
New rules for teacher evaluation will go into place for most districts in Illinois during the 2016-2017school year. These require at least 25% of a teacher’s rating be based on student growth. To help districts create their new evaluation plans EA staff have been working for the past two years to present information on student growth models. This includes learning about different types of growth models, their strengths and weaknesses, considerations when implementing the models, and more.
EA typically works with Regional Offices of Education to offer trainings to teams from districts. These trainings range from one-half day to three whole days. For more information or to offer training in your area, please contact us.
