Bracken County Schools Certified Evaluation Plan

“The vision for the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES) is to have every student taught by an effective teacher and every school led by an effective principal. The goal is to create a fair and equitable system to measure teacher and leader effectiveness and act as a catalyst for professional growth.”    Kentucky Department of Education

 http://education.ky.gov/teachers/PGES/Pages/PGES.aspx

“The Kentucky Framework for Teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction, aligned to the INTASC standards, and grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching. The complex activity of teaching is divided into multiple standards clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility:  Domain 1-- Planning and Preparation, Domain 2-- Classroom Environment, Domain 3—Instruction, and Domain 4-- Professional Responsibilities”

It is important to realize that this Framework takes into account the Kentucky Teacher Standards, the Kentucky Board of Education's Program of Studies, Kentucky Core Academic Standards, and the Kentucky Department of Education's Characteristics of Highly Effective Teaching and Learning.

Each component defines a distinct aspect of a domain; two to five elements describe a specific feature of a component.  Levels of teaching performance (rubrics) describe each component and provide a roadmap for improvement of teaching.

The Framework may be used for many purposes, but its full value is realized as the foundation for professional conversations among practitioners as they seek to enhance their skill in the complex task of teaching.  The Framework is the foundation of our school or district’s mentoring, coaching, and professional development, and teacher evaluation processes, thus linking all those activities together and helping teachers become more thoughtful practitioners.

“The Frameworks for Teaching for Other Professionals are research-based sets of components of instruction that are grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching.  The complex activity of teaching is divided into multiple standards clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility:  Domain 1-- Planning and Preparation, Domain 2-- The Environment, Domain 3-- Delivery of Service, and Domain 4-- Professional Responsibilities.  ?Frameworks for Teaching for Other Professionals are designed for the unique professional responsibilities of these specialists.”

“The Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PPGES) was developed in collaboration with Dr. James Stronge for collecting and presenting data to document performance based on well-defined job expectations. The uniform performance standards used in this system provide a balance between structure and flexibility and define common purposes and expectations, thereby guiding effective leadership. The performance standards also provide flexibility, encouraging creativity and individual principal initiative.

 The primary purposes of the Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System are to:

  • optimize student learning and growth
  • contribute to successful achievement of the goals and objectives defined in the vision, mission, and goals of the school district
  • provide a basis for leadership improvement through productive principal performance appraisal and professional growth
  • encourage collaboration between the principal and superintendent, and promote self-growth, leadership effectiveness, and improvement of overall job performance”
