District Leader Evaluation Model:
Designed to function as part of an integrated system

The effectiveness of
District
teacher evaluation is
influenced by the
effectiveness of school
School leader evaluation
which, in turn, is
influenced by the
Teacher effectiveness of district
leader evaluation.

1.877.411.7114 | LearningSciences.com 2017 Learning Sciences International


Leadership could be
considered the single most
important aspect of effective
school reform.
Marzano (2003)

1.877.411.7114 | LearningSciences.com 2017 Learning Sciences International


Agree or Disagree?

A shared vision and


approach is crucial, since
no piece of the system
operates independently
of any other.

What is Hierarchical or An Aligned
System of Evaluation?
True or False

It is a top down system?


It is designed to focus on measuring?
It is a responsive system where each level
informs the level above and below?
It is not currently used in any school districts?

1.877.411.7114 | LearningSciences.com 2017 Learning Sciences International


We Would Say:
For a teacher evaluation system to work well it
must be designed and function as one part of
an integrated system.

The effectiveness of teacher evaluation is


influenced by the effectiveness of school
leader evaluation which, in turn, is influenced
by the effectiveness of district leader
evaluation.

What are the Characteristics of an
Aligned Evaluation System?

An aligned evaluation system has defining


characteristics:
1. cascading domains of influence
2. correlated rubric structures
3. common language
4. results oriented
