The purpose of the Educator’s Handbook for Professional Growth is to provide a structure for licensed staff to self-reflect on their professional practices and for administrators and licensed staff to engage in conversations to improve teaching practices. The licensed evaluation process stands on the premise that all professionals are committed to improving their performance no matter how skillful they are.
The Corvallis School District’s evaluation process is based on Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching. This framework is a set of performance standards that describe quality professional practice. The framework rubric breaks down each standard, describing what it looks like at the unsatisfactory, basic, proficient, and distinguished levels. This provides a tool for administrators and licensed staff to engage in conversations about professional growth that will improve the quality of instruction for our students.
