Evaluation Changes
The DEC has spent the majority of this school year refining various aspects of the evaluation process.  These include: collapsing the PCQ into the required lesson plan template; revising examples in the 2013 Danielson Framework to better reflect opportunities in District 228; and shifting the focus to improving teaching and learning by designing a "modified Danielson" cycle to tenured teachers.  A summary of the changes can be found in the presentation listed below.  Drafts of the Domain 4 example changes and the new required lesson plan template are also provided below:
