Leadership Academy: THE Principal Evaluation System for now and the Future
Minnesota school districts have an important decision to make for the 2013-14 school year: Which principal evaluation system will best meet your district’s needs – next year, and for many years to come? We’d like to make sure you have all the information you need to make your decision, including specifics on the School Leader Evaluation Model developed by Dr. Robert Marzano to align with and support the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model. Dr. Marzano’s Leader Evaluation Model draws on the most up to date research available on principal growth and evaluation, and meets the MN state standards required for principal evaluation next year.
Leader Growth and the Link to Student Achievement: Aligning Goals and Expectations
School districts already using Dr. Marzano’s Teacher Evaluation Model will benefit from having an aligned principal evaluation model which focuses on shared goals, a common language of instruction, and provides aligned expectations.
The Marzano Leader Evaluation Model focuses on specific behaviors shown to impact student achievement, vital in today’s high-stakes evaluation environment.
The model provides clear evidences to assist administrators in providing a fair and accurate evaluation.
The model is built on Dr. Marzano’s years of research into the specific principal behaviors which have the highest impact in a school district.
The model also aligns with Dr. Marzano’s new District Leader Evaluation Model, and the Marzano Center’s Instructional Support Member Evaluation Framework.
For districts already using iObservation for teacher evaluation, there is no additional fee for adding the school leader model.
If your overriding goal is to increase student achievement within your district, Dr. Marzano’s School Leader Evaluation model is the right choice. The Marzano Leaders Evaluation Model is focused on proven elements that build and maintain strong relationships among principals, teachers, and the community through a shared vision and a common language of instruction.
