Linking Staff Development and Evaluation.
Lowe, J. Allen
Two of the most important functions that take place in school districts are staff development and staff evaluation. The relationship between these two functions, however, is more than two separate entities with some common administrative activities. Although it is conceivable that one of these functions is driven or motivated by the other, a better relationship is that the two functions are linked through the goal that both should increase the effectiveness of instruction. Whenever staff development activity occurs, there should be observations and generalizations made about the potential of staff development activities to improve instruction. Both subjective and objective measurement and information should be used to strengthen the goals of staff development and staff evaluation--the link between these two functions determines the strength between teaching and learning, the essence of the instructional program.
