Teacher Evaluation: A Guidebook for Connecticut School Districts.
Carrano, Andrew S.
This publication is intended to assist school districts in Connecticut in implementing section 10-151b of the Connecticut General Statutes, Connecticut's Teacher Evaluation Law. Each chapter deals with implementing a part of the law in compliance with established guidelines. Following an introductory chapter, the second chapter presents the law along with its history and guidelines for implementation. The next chapter deals with how a school district can begin to develop a plan. Chapter 4 is intended to assist districts in determining what needs and purposes the teacher evaluation program will fill. The purposes chosen for the evaluation program affect the development of the model for the evaluation process as explained in Chapter 5. The sixth chapter presents a strategy for determining the priorities of systemwide goals. The next two chapters discuss the writing of job descriptions and determining accountability relationships. Chapter 9 on self-evaluation methods is followed by Chapter 10 on how to write performance objectives. The mechanics of preparing a plan for teacher evaluation is presented in Chapter 12. Chapter 13 outlines further resources to assist Connecticut's districts in developing, implementing, evaluating, and refining their teacher evaluation programs. Resources discussed in this chapter are more fully listed in the lengthy appendix. (Author/JM)
