Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment

Teacher/Support Staff Member Evaluation System

The primary purpose of the teacher evaluation system is to improve student learning and achievement with respect to teacher and support staff members’ professional development and growth. This occurs via informal and formal observations as well as a summative evaluation. The Plumsted Township School District has adopted the Charlotte Danielson Framework for Teaching, providing performance feedback for teachers across four domains: Planning and Preparation, the Classroom Environment, Instruction, and Professional Responsibilities. Within each domain are four rating categories: ineffective, partially effective, effective, and highly effective. The frequency and types of observations conducted are in accordance with the requirements presented in Excellent Educators for New Jersey (EE4NJ). Our support staff members (i.e. Child Study Team members, counselors, nurses, and related service providers) are also evaluated with the Danielson model, albeit modifications for the domains are job-specific.  

Administrator Evaluation System

Similarly, the primary purpose of the administrator evaluation system is to improve student learning and achievement with respect to administrator professional development and growth. This occurs via informal and formal observations as well as a summative evaluation. The Plumsted Township School District has adopted the Stronge Leader Effectiveness Performance Evaluation System, providing performance feedback for administrators across seven performance standards: Instructional Leadership, School Climate, Human Resources Management, Organizational Management, Communication and Community Relations, Professionalism, and Student Progress. Within each standard are four rating categories: ineffective, partially effective, effective, and highly effective. The frequency and types of observations conducted are in accordance with the requirements presented in Excellent Educators for New Jersey (EE4NJ). Our assistant principals, directors, and principals are evaluated with the Stronge model, albeit modifications for the standards are job-specific.
