In 2013-14, as a non-Race to the Top district, 50% of North Reading's Educators began on the new model system. In 2014-15 and beyond all of the educators in the district will be on the new model system.
Educators in the New Model System will complete a 5 step process, beginning with Self-Assessment. The chart below describes the process.
Please view these 2 page Quick Reference Guides for more information.
During the first years of implementation will focus on the following elements on the Teacher Rubric (and the corresponding elements of the SISP rubric).
This graphic below demonstrates the relationship between the plans for professional status teachers and the impact rating on student learning. For example, in North Reading, a three year trend of low growth for students would indicate that an educator would create a 1 Year Self Directed Plan if she were on a 2 Year Self Directed plan previously. This will allow the educator to focus on improving student learning in that 1 Year Plan.
