  The BPS is committed to ensuring that all evaluators are well-trained, and that those being evaluated understand the process because when you invest time in an educator evaluation, you:
  • promote more effective teaching and administrative leadership practices in your school, resulting in improved outcomes for students.
  • provide a great opportunity for BPS central office and school leaders to target professional development resources toward areas of need, leading to more effective support for teacher professional growth.
  • cultivate a learning culture among all members of your school community.
  • fulfill state regulations and the BPS-Boston Teachers Union (BTU) contractual requirements.

      • Rubrics, including the DESE 'What to look for' observation guides, are designed to help educators and evaluators in different ways including to (1) Develop a consistent, shared understanding of what proficient performance looks like in practice; (2) Develop a common terminology and structure to organize evidence; and (3) Make informed professional judgments about formative and summative performance ratings on each Standard and an overall rating. As a result, rubrics play a part in all five components of the BPS Evaluation cycle.
