Educator Effectiveness

self-paced EE learning

Educator Effectiveness, which is an evaluation system for educators and administrators, focuses on professional growth and development through observation, reflection, and professional learning.  Research shows that the number one factor contributing to student growth is teacher quality.  Therefore, Kenosha Unified is dedicated to focusing on classroom teachers and school leaders to support student success through this process.  Each year, all educators and administrators will develop an Effectiveness Plan that addresses professional learning and student outcomes.  This plan will make up half of the evaluation system and professional practice will comprise the other half. Evaluators and educators will work together to gather data and artifacts that address goals and reflect on progress.  Emphasis will be placed on growth in this model and participants will make student learning their highest priority.
