"We Agree" Statements: Our Values and Operating Principles of Leadership
Benchmarking student growth, evaluating educator effectiveness and ensuring teachers have access to viable instructional tools is a critical charge of Westminster Public Schools. Toward this end, the Department of Assessment and Instructional Technology develops, supervises and evaluates district functions in the areas of assessment, compliance reporting and the implementation of instructional technology.
The department helps keep classroom educators and administrators informed on the implementation of all K-12 assessment programs. This includes developing processes based on state standards and district Learning Targets to inform teachers about the effectiveness of their instruction, as well as help students track and monitor their learning. Districts are required to supervise and administer local and state assessments, coordinate accreditation and school improvement plans and ensure measurable growth exists in best practices, research, evaluation and assessment systems.
Finally, the Department of Assessment and Instructional Technology supports the integration of various forms of technology into district curriculum frameworks by providing leadership, support, and professional development of 21st century learning. The department investigates, researches, evaluates, and recommends creative and innovative uses of technology as a means of improving instruction, curriculum, academic support and administrative delivery systems.
