Kassie: TPEP presentation

  1. 1. + Washington State Teacher Principal Evaluation Project (TPEP) Kassie Swenson Human Resources, Renton School District
  2. 2. + How Can TPEP Be Successfully Implemented?
  3. 3. + The Four P’s: Purpose, Picture, Plan and Part  Purpose: People need to understand the logic before they will turn their minds to it.  Picture: People need to experience the look and feel of the outcome imaginatively before they can give their hearts to it.  Plan: People need a clear idea of how they can get where they need to go.  Part: People need a tangible way to contribute and participate. The Four P’s are taken from William Bridges’ book, “Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change”, p. 60
  4. 4. + Why a New Evaluation System: What is the Purpose?  The new evaluation system is a four-tiered system providing guidance on how to improve through professional growth opportunities vs. a two-tiered system that provided little guidance on how to improve.  The teacher and the principal evaluation overlap and the content in the principal evaluation provides the “how” of developing teacher capacity.  The evaluation’s rubric is useful for teachers and principals to guide and track their progress and growth.  Incorporating student growth in the evaluation ensures students can reach their full learning potential. Information from: Educational Leadership article, “The Two Purposes of Teacher Evaluation” by Robert J. Marzano, http://www.ascd.org/publications/educational-leadership/nov12/vol70/num03/The-Two-Purposes-of-Teacher-Evaluation.aspx TPEP WA website: http://tpep-wa.org/wp-content/uploads/TPEP_Module-Student_Growth.pdf
  5. 5. + What Does It Look Like (Picture)  OSPI has provided resources and support for TPEP; districts personalize them focused on their unique objectives and professional development needs.  Districts paint the picture to teachers and principals how they will be supported to grow professionally through this new process.  The picture depends on the framework selected: Danielson, Marzano, CEL or AWSP.  The district needs to constantly and consistently communicate with staff the plan and the benefits of the new teacher and principal evaluation system.
  6. 6. + What Does It Look Like (Teacher’s Perspective) This North Mason School District teacher, Rachel Sites, shares her perspective in an effort “to paint a picture of what the process can look and feel like” http://tpep-wa.org/wp-content/uploads/TPEP-Capturing_Learning_Pts-Sect-5.pdf
  7. 7. + What is the Plan?  The district and site administrator need a plan to successfully implement TPEP  District leadership needs to have and communicate the evaluation process at the building.  What about district and school culture? What are the plans for sustained professional growth?
  8. 8. + What Part Does the Principal and/or Teacher Play?  Principal      Create a culture focused on professional development and data driven dialogues.
