Teacher Performance Management in Denver Public Schools. Executive Summary
New Teacher Project
In the 2008-2009 school year, The New Teacher Project (TNTP) partnered with Denver Public Schools (DPS) and the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (DCTA) to assess the effectiveness of current teacher performance management policies and practices. DPS and the DCTA have been national leaders in their willingness to examine the difficult issues surrounding teacher performance management and to explore creative alternatives to the status quo. TNTP's analysis reveals that DPS' current performance management framework is a set of largely meaningless processes that fail to differentiate teacher performance, provide teachers with adequate feedback or effective support, or address poor performance. Furthermore, school administrators have a weak understanding of performance management processes and lack essential training in this area.
