New School Improvement Network Case Study Shows How Rural New York District Streamlined Teacher Observations to Increase Educator Effectiveness
SALT LAKE CITY—Aug. 29, 2013—School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness and teacher observation resources, today announced a new case study showing how a rural New York district streamlined teacher observations to increase educator effectiveness and student achievement with PD 360 and Observation 360—tools within the Educator Effectiveness System.
“When done correctly, teacher observations can be an opportunity for educator growth in unprecedented ways,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “As part of the Educator Effectiveness System, Observation 360 and PD 360 connect teacher observations to personalized professional development in a way that drives teachers towards more effective teaching and student success.”
Observation 360 turns the teacher observation process into a meaningful educator growth experience. It offers administrators every tool they need to conduct effective observations, create personalized professional learning plans, and track results. Paired with PD 360, Observation 360 enables administrators to assign specific professional development videos and resources in response to teacher observation results.
The newly released case study details how Mexico Academy and Central School District in Oswego County, New York, used Observation 360 and PD 360 to give holistic support for every educator in the teacher observation process, increasing educator effectiveness.
