On April 28, 2011, the Board of Education approved the revised documents, Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Teachers and the Virginia Standards for the Professional Practice of Teachers. The guidelines and standards will become effective on July 1, 2012; however, school boards and divisions are authorized to implement them prior to July 1, 2012.
The model recommends that 40 percent of teachers’ evaluations be based on student academic progress, as determined by multiple measures of learning and achievement, including, when available and applicable, student-growth data from VDOE.
Standards related to professional knowledge, instructional planning, instructional delivery, assessment of and for student learning, learning environment and professionalism each account for ten percent of the evaluation and performance rating within the model.
