  13. K-6 School-wide Cluster Configuration Kindergarten cluster First grade cluster Second grade cluster Leadership Team Special area cluster Third grade cluster Sixth grade cluster Fourth grade cluster Fifth grade cluster *Special education most often joins grade-level cluster meetings, but may meet together at times.

  14. 7-8 School-wide Cluster Configuration 7-8 Language Arts cluster 7-8 Math cluster 7-8 Special Area cluster Leadership Team 7-8 Science cluster 7-8 Social Studies cluster *Special education, ESL, Reading, etc often join content area cluster membership and on occasion form their own cluster meetings.

  15. STEPS for Effective Learning Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Identify problem or need. Obtain new teacher learning aligned to student need and formatted for classroom application. Develop new teacher learning with support in the classroom. Apply new teacher learning to the classroom. Evaluate the impact on student performance. Evidence of need (using pre-test) is clear, specific, high quality, and measurable in Student outcomes Evidenced through observation, peer coaching, and self- reflection applied to student work as a formative assessment. Evidence includes student assessment (post-test) aligned with data analysis and the new teaching strategies. Development through demonstration, modeling, practice, team- teaching, and peer coaching with subsequent analysis of student work. Address student content learning with links to teacher strategies and the Rubric. Using credible sources Proven application showing student growth.

  17. Meeting Our Challenges Through TAP Accountability Support

  18. Planning Instruction Instructional Plans Student Work Assessment Learning Environment Managing Student Behavior ExpectationsEnvironment Respectful Culture Implementing Instruction Standards and ObjectivesMotivating Students Presenting Instructional Content Lesson Structure and Pacing Learning Activities and Materials Questioning Academic Feedback Grouping Students Teacher Content Knowledge Teacher Knowledge of Students Thinking Problem Solving Responsibilities Staff Development Instructional Supervision School ResponsibilitiesReflecting on Teaching TAP Teaching Performance Standards: Skills, Knowledge & Responsibilities

  19. Salaries and bonuses tied to responsibilities, instructional performance and student achievement growth. How Does TAP Work? • The teacher’s instructional performance • Student achievement growth a teachermakes in the classroom • Student achievement growth the schoolmakes as a whole

  20. Measuring Teacher Performance Determined by Approved Testing Determined by Evaluations with TAP Rubrics and Responsibility Survey Individual Student Achievement Teacher Skills, Knowledge and Responsibilities 30% School-wide Student Achievement 50% 20%

  21. Pool Amount is based on the number of teachers by the determined amount per teacher. Category amounts are based on number of teachers in that category * designated amount. Pool Amount Example: $2,000 per teacher 52 teachers * $2,000 = $104,000 National Institute for Excellence in Teaching

  22. Based on $2,000 per teacher With Classroom-level Value-added achievement data Career Mentor Master SKR (Teacher Evals) 50% $1,000 Classroom-level VA 20% $400 School-wide VA 30% $600 Without Classroom-level Value-added student achievement data Career Mentor Master SKR (Teacher Evals) 50% $1,000 School-wide VA 50% $1,000 National Institute for Excellence in Teaching
