Jeffco is part of a large federal grant that is attempting to improve student achievement by piloting new ways of supporting and compensating teachers. North Arvada is one of twenty Jeffco schools in the pilot. This means that
1.) we have more support in our building for our teachers, and
2.) teachers who meet student achievement goals and have excellent evaluations can earn stipends.
The extra support for our teachers includes:
Even great teachers can get better with the right support, so the goal is that, through the support of master and mentor teachers and peer evaluators, we can improve our instruction and in so doing, increase our students' achievement.
