Washington State’s Teacher and Principal Evaluation Pilot is developing a corps of Instructional & Leadership Criteria and Framework Feedback Specialists (CFFSs) to support the state’s 2,800 principals as they implement a new evaluation system for teachers. With priority given to the 65 districts with Regional Implementation Grants (RIGs), OSPI intends to train 900 principals, assistant principals, and district administrators in August of 2012 and 1,800 in the spring and summer of 2013.
We are working on developing training modules around the instructional frameworks and the system as a whole. Some form of training will be available in person and online. Stay tuned to this page for more materials and training dates. Here’s what ESSB 5895 says about training:
Subject to funds appropriated for this purpose, the office of the superintendent of public instruction must develop and make available a professional development program to support the implementation of the evaluation systems required by RCW 28A.405.100. The program components may be organized into professional development modules for principals, administrators, and teachers. The professional development program shall include a comprehensive online training package.
