1 Garden City Public Schools RISE: Research-based Inclusive System of Evaluation Garden City, Michigan Professional School Counselor Evaluation Handbook Prepared by Keith Anleitner, Director of Evaluation
2 Acknowledgements Michigan first passed new evaluation legislation in January of 2011, which required districts to implement a performance-based teacher evaluation process. At that time, guidelines and procedures were developed. A committee comprised of teachers and administrators met to develop the new evaluation tool. Many meetings later, after hours of deliberation, a preliminary document was produced. That document contains the overall structure of four quartiles of components of evaluation. The first three quartiles, with the exception of one sub point in the Classroom Management Domain were developed by the committee. The Department of Curriculum gratefully acknowledges the work of the Performance-Based Teacher Evaluation Committee members for their work on the specified aforementioned portions: Keith Anleitner, Associate Garden City High School Jan Blumberg, Memorial 1/2 Campus Mary Brammer, ELA Garden City High School Mary Coffey, Special Education Farmington 5/6 Campus Karen Hawes, Special Education Burger School for Students with Autism Alex McNeece, Lathers Prek-Kindergarten Campus Ron Pummill, Physical Education Garden City Middle School Lynn Sossi, Assistant Burger School for Students with Autism Joe Valdivia, Assistant Burger School for Students with Autism Michelle Cline, Superintendent of Garden City Public Schools In July of 2011, new, paradigm shifting legislation on evaluation and tenure was signed into law on the 19 th day of that month by Governor Snyder. Due to the imminent opening and operation of school year constraints, one sub point in the Classroom Management Domain and the student growth plans were adopted. While administration did keep creative ideas from the first committee, changes were made based on the new legislation and a collection of ideas from multiple sources. The Curriculum Department in cooperation with building, central office and executive administration, coupled with feedback from teachers, inclusive research from Charlotte Danielson s evaluation models, and other evaluation instruments across the United States influenced the crafting of this system of evaluation. In short, Garden City Public Schools adopt this draft of RISE standards which effectively captures the complexity of teaching and learning through research-based best practices.
3 Garden City Standards of Effective Teaching In Garden City Public Schools, effective Prek-12 teachers are professional educators who hold high expectations for all students and the belief that effort creates ability. They know their students, content and the curriculum thoroughly and have a broad repertoire of content-specific, culturally responsive strategies and activities to use with students to meet rigorous learning goals. They are flexible given their students learning needs and the dynamics of the classroom and use formative assessment to adapt instruction to maximize learning opportunities for all students. Effective teachers have established rituals and routines that foster a safe learning environment where effort is privileged allowing students to fully engage in instructional activities, ask questions and take part in class discussions. Effective teachers continuously work to improve their practice and knowledge of students, while acting as a resource for others in their professional learning community. Our mission is to grow and develop our students by continuously advancing the professional practice of our teachers. With that in mind, the administrators and teachers within the Garden City Public Schools adopt this draft of RISE standards which effectively captures the complexity of teaching and learning through research-based best practices.
4 Dimensions of Learning model, or framework, are five basic assumptions: 1. Instruction must reflect the best of what we know about how learning occurs. 2. Learning involves a complex system of interactive processes that include various types of thinking- represented by the five dimensions below. 3. Curriculum programs should include the explicit teaching of attitudes, perceptions and mental habits that facilitate learning. 4. A comprehensive approach to instruction includes both teacher directed and student directed instruction. 5. Assessment should focus on students' use of knowledge and complex reasoning processes rather than on their recall of information. Dimensions of Learning Model
5 PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL COUNSELORS Garden City Public Schools Counselor Evaluation is based on research from nationally recognized authorities in the field of effective teaching particularly, Charlotte Danielson in her book Teacher Evaluation to Enhance Professional Practice and Evaluation. We believe that Garden City Public Schools RISE system clearly reflects a balanced blend of components for effective counseling. Within this document is a rigorous, transparent, and fair performance evaluation system. The Performance-Based Professional School Counselor Evaluation System serves a threefold purpose: providing direction for the supervision and evaluation of professional school counselors; providing an objective basis for school district personnel decision-making; and providing school boards with the assurance that the quality of their districts professional school counselors is maintained and enhanced. The system will help professional school counselors design their professional development and/or improvement plans; aid district administrators in making continuing employment and tenure decisions concerning professional school counselors as well as making recommendations regarding future staffing needs and assignments; and demonstrate professional school counselor effectiveness to the board of education and to the community. School counselors work with other educators to ensure student success. They address students academic and emotional needs, and design approaches to help students chart a course for their lives and careers beyond school. Increasingly, counselors are working as leaders in their schools to effect systemic changes that advance students success. Counselors may work from a separate office or counseling center, or they may take their program into classrooms for sessions with entire classes. Most counselors combine the two settings, selecting the approach that is appropriate to the school s schedule and student needs. Counselors are advocates for the appropriate level of instruction for students, and engage in interventions designed to support student growth and the achievement of goals. These interventions are accomplished with students individually, as well as in small group and whole-class settings. Counselors role at the secondary level is quite different from that at the elementary level. With young children, the emphasis is on ensuring appropriate instruction and helping all students acquire communication and problem-solving skills. At the secondary level, the counselor s responsibilities typically shift to more individual post-secondary planning, helping students determine their strengths and optimal courses of action. School counselors work at several levels of responsibility; with individual students, as a resource to teachers, and giving advice for school-wide approaches. With individual students, they counsel students regarding excessive tardiness or behavior and social problems, and help them design an appropriate academic program and learn how to make better decisions. The counselor may also collaborate with teachers to present curriculum-based guidance lessons, or offer advice on behavior management or study hall procedures. In addition, the counselor might work at the school level, interpreting cognitive, aptitude, and achievement tests, interpreting student records, and assisting the school principal in identifying and resolving student needs, issues, and problems, and serving on school improvement teams to make the school more supportive of students achievement. The domains and components of a school counselor s responsibilities are as follows:
6 Planning and Preparation Demonstrating knowledge of counseling theory and techniques Demonstrating knowledge of child and adolescent development Establishing goals for the counseling program appropriate to the setting and the students served Demonstrating knowledge of state and federal regulations and resources, both within and beyond the school and district Planning the counseling program, integrated with the regular school program, and including crisis prevention, intervention, and response.

Domain 4 List of memberships in professional organizations List of leadership roles within the school/district/county/state List of professional development sessions attended Presentations for fellow educators at school/district/county/state meetings Documentation/Videos/Reflections on own practice or practice of colleagues (peer observation)
15 DOMAIN 5. Student Growth A teacher s student growth evaluation is likely to involve a combination of multiple measures (e.g. the growth of students across a grade level as well as that of the students a teacher teaches directly.) Those measures are identified below: Core Element Fundamental Process Essential Skill Definition STUDENT GROWTH Using Multiple Data Sources Informal Assessment Formal Assessment Non-Assessment Data Embedding Technology REQUIRED GROWTH INDICATORS FOR TEACHERS: using what happens in the classroom to assess student growth toward an intended outcome designing and using specific assessment tools to assess student growth toward an intended outcome collecting, analyzing, and applying information related to student needs, interests, opinions, extracurricular pursuits, behavior, attendance, etc. that may inform instruction using student data systems to collect and analyze information necessary for instructional decision-making Using Pre-Test/Post-Test to Measure Student Growth by Classroom A teacher gives their students a diagnostic test to benchmark student skills. This is a skills test that accompanies the curriculum, a department or grade level wide assessment (common assessment), or any other task that will provide students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge or skills. The diagnostic identifies specific content expectations or core standards that will be covered over the course of the year or trimester. At the completion of the year or semester, students complete a similar assessment. The difference between student performances on the diagnostic and assessment is calculated. HB 4627, Section 1249, (c)..student growth shall be measured by national, state, or local assessments and other objective criteria.
16 Teacher Evaluation - Student Growth Indicators Student growth must be included as a significant portion of each teacher s evaluation. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the teacher evaluation will be based upon a student growth segment of the total evaluation. The Student Growth Component will be divided into 2 parts. Seventy-five percent (75%) of growth will be based upon the teacher s individual performance whereas 25% will be based upon a collective building aggregate on a State standardized assessment. Student growth will be measured differently at the various levels, and be based upon available local and State assessments. Important points of clarification include: The total student growth component of the evaluation will make up 25% of the total evaluation. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the student growth component will be based upon individual teacher local measures and assessments (that have been or will be developed by the District Curriculum leader teams) and individual teacher s Twenty-five percent (25%) of the student growth component will be based upon a collective building aggregate on a State standardized assessment. Student growth will be based upon students that have been with the District for one or more years. Students that are absent more than 15% of the time may be excluded from Student Growth statistics in the evaluation process. Teachers in general education classrooms may opt to also exclude up to 5% of Special Education students with IEPs that certify students with disabilities in that teachers subject area. Due to the nature of available assessments and different grade level structures (i.e. hourly classes at secondary versus self-contained classes at elementary), student growth will be calculated based upon the level that an individual teacher works. Effectiveness ratings in the Student Growth domain may be determined in a few different ways: 1) student growth from the beginning of one year to the end, or from an average of the beginning of trimesters to the end, or from one unit to the next 2) a combination of the methods.
17 In summary, with only 2 student growth indicators they will be worth 10 percentage points each and the all school score will be worth 5% points. For schools without an All School Score their two indicators will be worth 12.5 percent each. Therefore, it is mandated that teachers include the Student Growth Indicator (SGI) as a part of the total experienced teacher performance appraisal process. The purpose of including student growth as one measure of teacher effectiveness supports both the research base that clearly equates improved student performance with prescriptive teaching, and school-wide performance improvement. Additionally, by examining student growth, educational leaders can be assured of compliance with minimal standards and student accountability at the individual teacher level. Building scores will be based on the following assessments: K- MLPP and/or STAR early Literacy (Burger, Cambridge HS, GIVE, and FA do not 1 st -2 nd DRA 2 and/or MMLA have building scores at this time.) 3 rd 6 th NWEA and/or MEAP 7 th -8 th PLAN/EXPLORE and/or MEAP GCHS MME and/or ACT

Attach a copy of pre and post assessments or descriptions of projects or papers with the rubrics used for assessment. Also include a class list of students names and their levels of performance. Clearly define how you determined each student has shown growth. The growth must be based on a set of state standards or common core standards appropriate to your content and /or grade level.

19 WORKSHEET FOR SCORING RANGES First Four Domains: When totaling your aggregate score for the first four domains the multiplier is (.75) times (X) your effectiveness rating. Highly Effective is = 4, Effective = 3, Minimally Effective = 2, and Ineffective =1. Each of the first four domains have a total range of 15 points apiece. A perfect score in the first four domains would equal 60 of 80 of the Total Range of Effectiveness we are using for all teacher affiliated evaluations. Thus, each of the first four domains is translated to be worth 20 points apiece and the SGI is 20 points. When totaling your score for the Student Growth Indicator (SGI) your multiplier will vary based on the choices of amounts of indicators you submit. If you choose the minimum of two, your multiplier will be 2.5. For instance, if you receive a Highly Effective on the first or (4.0) and an Effective (3.0) on the other SGI, your sub total for the (SGI) = 2.5 (X) 4= (X) 3= 7.5 for a TOTAL of TOTAL OVERALL SCORE: When totaling all five domains, your total overall score will fall into one of four categories: Highly Effective= 80-69, Effective=68-59, Minimally Effective=58-50, & Ineffective= SCORING RANGES on LEVELS OF EFFECTIVENESS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE EFFECTIVE MINIMALLY EFFECTIVE INEFFECTIVE (80-69) (68-59) (58-50) (49-20)
