Accountability Procedures Manual for On-Site Evaluations, 2002-2003.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This Accountability Procedures Manual (APM) is designed to be used by Texas Education Agency staff and other education system personnel as a guide for on-site evaluations. It is the responsibility of each member of an on-site peer review team to become familiar with the contents of the APM. Quality peer review evaluations demand consistency, accuracy, and adherence to approved procedures. This manual will help ensure that on-site evaluation teams are consistent and accountable to the Agency and to local school districts. The APM also provides a basis for preparing for on-site evaluations, interviewing school personnel, making observations, and reporting findings. The APM is organized into six sections. The first presents the statutory authority for on-site evaluation and describes the purpose and organization of the APM. Section 2 describes the types of on-site visits, and section 3 contains general guidelines for Agency staff and participants. Section 4 describes the duties, roles, and responsibilities of on-site evaluation teams, and section 5 describes the roles and responsibilities of Education Service Center staff. Section 6 contains the acronyms used in the division reports and documents. (SLD)
