These days principals are expected to do more—conduct more observations, debrief with teachers, and develop personalized growth plans—amid their many other responsibilities. It's also a new world for teachers, many of whom may not be used to being observed multiple times in one school year.
Teachscape's solution for teacher evaluation helps districts meet federal and state requirements and address every step of the process. The systems that are part of this solution are designed to help ensure evaluations are effective and efficient and lead to sustained improvement in teaching practice.
Districts can implement this modular solution all at once, or one building block at a time in a phased approach.
