Evaluation will take place at every step of this plan. The Star chart data will be used to assess the needs on campus. It will be used to assess individual teachers who can provide support for other teachers on campus. It will also be used to determine professional development needs on campus. Teacher lesson plans will be evaluated to assess the implementation of technology into the classroom. These lessons plans will also be used to identify teachers who need additional support from the technology department. Evaluations from professional development sessions will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the session. Teachers will also be able to identify self assessed areas of need that may be able to be addressed on the campus. Administrative support in the data analysis session will give administrators several sources of evaluation. They will be able to identify the teachers actively engaged in the data analysis. They will be able to participate in the planning of instructional improvements identified from the data analysis. Administrators can then assess their implementation through walk-throughs and teacher evaluations. Lastly, teachers will complete a technology assessment aligned with the campus goals. This data will be used to evaluate progress with the campus goals and used to identify continued areas of need. All sources of data will be used to evaluate this year’s goals as well as identify goals for the following year. It will also be used to ensure alignment with the district Long Range Plan and the District Improvement Plan.
