Development and Evaluation

Our Teacher Development & Evaluation (TD&E) Plan explains our evaluation process and our annual individual development goal setting process.


Individual Growth and Development Plan (IGDP)

At the beginning of each school year, staff determine professional practice goals, a student learning goal, and a student engagement & connection goal (if applicable). A detailed explanation is included in our TD&E Plan.

All staff use a Google Sheet template to document IGDP goals. Our Office Manager emails new staff their copy of the IGDP template as part of the onboarding process. The same Sheet is used each year from that point forward — we simply add new tabs to the spreadsheet for each school year. The submission due dates for your IGDP are:

  • 🍁 Setting your goals for the year:
    • Share your IGDP spreadsheet with your supervisor by October 15.
  • 🌳 Reflecting on your goals:
    • Share your IGDP spreadsheet with your supervisor and with the SCRED Office Manager (for filing purposes).
    • If you are in an evaluation year — by June 1.
    • If you are NOT in an evaluation year — by June 15.


Fall Coaching Conversation with Supervisor

Every fall, you sit down with your supervisor to discuss your professional goals for the year and how your supervisor can support you.

📆 Sign up for your 2023-24 coaching conversation. Supervisors make appointment slots available 🍁 between late August and mid-October (when IGDP goals are due).


Evaluation Process

SCRED staff are evaluated by their supervisors on a three year cycle. A detailed explanation is included in our TD&E Plan. The evaluation components include:

  • Observation (pre-observation planning and post-observation reflection) 
  • Stakeholder surveys
  • Review of documentation
  • Essential duties rubric
  • Summative evaluation

Linked within the TD&E Plan, you'll find copies of the observation templates that supervisors use when evaluating meeting facilitation, professional learning, or direct instruction.


Professional Learning Days

All SCRED staff gather in our training center three times each year — 🍁 August, ☃️ December, and 🌳 May. Here are a few examples of what happens on these days:

  • Whole-group interactive learning on topics relevant to all staff
  • "Unconference" learning with choose-your-own sessions (this is often a December staple)
  • Breakouts to discuss IGDP or PLC goals and to reflect on progress
  • Reviewing need-to-know procedures and upcoming to-dos. We try to do this in an interactive gamified format and also share a ✅ To-Do & Review Checklist so that the due dates and info. are easy to keep track of.
  • Health insurance updates (e.g., presentations from our plan administrators)
  • Celebrating award recipients, years of service milestones, and retirees
