Administrators Evaluation Recertification - #1865 Wednesday, May 19th 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Virtual Registration Required - Click Here to Register Facilitator: Jody Ware Description: The Academy focuses on a high rate of interrater reliability using the required performance evaluation ratings. Using case studies, the participants will collect evidence and use the Illinois Standards for Principal Evaluation to rate the principals. Participants will use data collected from the case studies and compare the data to best practices for evaluating principals and assistant principals. This data will also be analyzed to prepare administrative and school-level professional development plans. Participants will prepare targeted professional development, in a collaborative and supportive way, plans that consider past results and contribute to professional and personal growth. This plan will be aligned to the school improvement plan. The instructional environment indicators will be analyzed. The purpose of the evaluation plan will be to communicate the outcomes and findings in such a manner that the principals and assistant principals set goals for improvement. The participants own personal bias will be analyzed while making these decisions. This training will serve as the RECERTIFICATION training for any administrator who evaluates other administrators in the building or district.

Teacher Evaluation Recertification - #1448 Monday, May 10th 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Virtual Registration Required - Click Here to Register Description: Administrators who evaluate teachers must demonstrate a high rate of inter-rater reliability and communicate evaluation outcomes in constructive and supportive ways. Administrators who evaluate teachers must also recognize and control for bias when conducting an evaluation and determining results. School districts in Illinois must provide professional development to administrators to strengthen these skills on a sustained basis. This course focuses on Domains 2 and 3 of the Charlotte Danielson 2013 Framework for Teaching. This course requires participants to view teaching, record data according to the Professional Practice rubric, and craft evaluation conferences that are both constructive and supportive. Participants will also be expected to have a high degree of inter-rater reliability when they determine a final rating based on the evidence gathered during the observations.

Friday School Celebration Submitted by : Deana Simpson Principal, Monroe Center Grade School Our Reverse Leadership Day at MC was a hit with students and staff. We had a tremendous response from staff family willing to share their talents and gifts with students in hopes that students continue to recognize their special talents and gifts. The next step is to have them use those gifts to determine what our Student Leadership Groups will be for FY22. So beyond proud of all of the staff and students at Monroe Center Grade School.
