Teacher Hiring, Support and Evaluation in Thompson School District, CO. Executive Summary
New Teacher Project
In the spring of 2008, The New Teacher Project (TNTP) partnered with the Thompson School District (TSD) in Loveland, Colorado, to analyze current teacher staffing practices in the district and make recommendations to further build the concentration of highly effective teachers in TSD schools. TNTP's analysis of policy and practice in TSD demonstrated that TSD has a strong record of academic performance that reflects the district's ability to attract and retain high-quality teachers. The district has avoided some of the common staffing challenges that TNTP has documented in other districts across the country. However, TNTP's analysis reveals that applicant shortages, delayed hiring, and ineffective support and evaluation mechanisms keep the Thompson School District from fully capitalizing on its ability to give all students high-quality teachers.
