The Pennsylvania ASCD Evaluation Academy targets superintendents, principals, and supervisors who evaluate teachers using the PDE Measuring Teacher Effectiveness evaluation. The academy will teach effective methods for evidence-based evaluation, teacher improvement plans, teacher dismissal, and developing a district plan for teacher remediation/dismissal.
The Pennsylvania ASCD Evaluation Academy is PDE PIL approved for Act 45 credit. Participants will receive forty (40) Act 45 or Act 48 hours.
The Evaluation Academy is designed for administrators and supervisors who are responsible for the evaluation of teachers using the PDE Measuring Teacher Effectiveness Model with the updated requirements from Act 13. The Measuring Teacher Effectiveness Model is based on the work of Charlotte Danielson's Enhancing Professional Practice. The academy will equip those who evaluate teachers with the knowledge of classroom data collection processes, use of the data to inform evaluation, and then using evaluation to either improve the professional practice of the teacher or move towards dismissal.
