Alaska Educator Evaluation Design Tools
The Alaska Department of Education & Early Development has developed tools that can be used by districts across the state as they redesign their evaluation and support system. The purpose of the design tools is to provide templates and samples to be used as a starting point to developing a revised district educator evaluation and support system that satisfies the new regulatory requirements and also incorporates best practices.
A working committee has been established with representatives from pioneering districts in their efforts in Educator Evaluation in Alaska. These districts offered their districts’ evaluation systems and components to be adapted for statewide use. At committee meetings, the group has worked carefully to design tools and templates that meet both the statutes and regulations requirements. Feel free to use these design tools and adapt them to fit your districts’ needs.
Note: According to state law, each district’s school board is responsible for the district’s evaluation and support system. During the redesign of its evaluation and support system, the district must consider information from students, parents, community members, classroom teachers, affected collective bargaining units, and administrators. The new regulations also require that the district consults directly with the educators who are subject to the evaluation system when identifying the appropriate student learning data for evaluation and when adopting performance standards for student learning.
