GrowthPLUS

Get the training and support you need to get the most out of your educator evaluation tool with GrowthPLUS. 

MASA is hosting two workshops through the School ADvance GrowthPLUS Network to help ensure administrators meet all state requirements surrounding evaluations. This robust network of school administrators will be provided the opportunity to develop skills to further district learning growth and improvement. School ADvance users can sign up for a yearly subscription to the GrowthPLUS Network, which covers two representatives and offers a bundle of support and services (see details below). Alternatively, users can sign up to attend just the two drive-in conferences without a subscription. The two conferences will include a focus on fully integrating, designing, developing, facilitating, supporting, and evaluating the School ADvance educator evaluation system.

Session 1: Student Growth

December 11, 2017 School ADvance trainers will engage administrators by providing tools focused on student growth based on current MDE guidance. Participants will leave this session having a better understanding of Domain 1: Results, and how to develop a student growth rating system.

Session 2: Fine-tuning the Evaluation Cycle

February 28, 2018 School ADvance trainers will assist administrators with fine tuning the evaluation cycle, evidence development and interpretation, developing powerful personal growth plans, and conducting evidence-based conferencing. Participants will leave this session with all the evaluation characteristics unpacked and evidences outlined for each effectiveness level.
