Educator Evaluation

ESE's Spring Convening 2015: Building Momentum, Sharing Success

On May 27th and 28th, 2015, educators across the state came together to share promising practices that support our shared goal of all students having access to effective teachers and leaders. The 750 participants included teachers, school administrators, district leaders, local union and association leaders, and representatives from educator preparation programs.

Presented by the implementation experts—teachers and leaders in local districts—breakout session topics spanned the educator continuum—from pre-service performance assessments, induction and mentoring, collecting evidence for evaluation, professional development, to using data to improve systems and programs.

Thank you to all the participants and presenters who made ESE's 2015 Spring Convening a huge success! More than ever, this year's event was filled with collaboration, networking, and examples of the positive impact educator effectiveness work holds for students.
