Result of Funding: Through the Elevate Preparation: Impact Children (EPIC) Initiative, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) seeks to deepen and extend the quality of field-based experiences in order to ensure that teacher candidates are ready to make an impact on day one. In line with this goal, the Supervisor Certification Pilot Grant will support participation in the pilot of a certification mechanism that can be used to assess the ability of supervisors to provide high-quality feedback and support to teacher candidates. By establishing a rigorous certification mechanism focused on the delivery of high-quality feedback to teacher candidates, DESE seeks to recognize and retain high-performing supervisors and enable Sponsoring Organizations (SOs) to target additional support and training towards developing these essential skills.
