Our administrative team and Teaching & Learning coaches spent the day in our first of five Regional Implementation Grant (RIG) training days focused on implementing the new teacher evaluation model, the 5D+ from CEL. For some, it was the first opportunity to learn about the various terminology and formats used by the developers to focus on instructional capacity and supporting teacher growth. For others, it was a continuation of work we have been engaged with in other learning opportunities.
Though we know that some buildings have had opportunities to engage in conversations about 5D+, Scott Mitchellg and I are developing a video to formally introduce all staff to the model. This will be followed by continued bargaining around the parameters for the work and introduction of the framework at all buildings.
By the way, our own Shadow Lake Principal, Chris Everett, is one of our trainers, chosen last year in a competitive process at the state level.
