- What is the deadline for the Formal Observation?
The Formal Observation must be completed by February 15, 2019 for most teachers, but the deadline is February 8, 2019 for Early Education teachers.
- Where do we find the Lesson Design Template for the Formal Observation?
All the supporting materials for the Formal Observation will be found uner the Primary Activities tab of the teachers's evaluation page on MyPGS. Open the section titled, "Formal Observation (Required)" to locate the Lesson Design, optional Teacher Reflection, Observation Notes, Ratings, etc.
- What is the difference between the Formal Observation and the Growth Plan Visit?
The Growth Plan visit gives the administrator the opportunity to observe a portion of a lesson and provide feedback related to the Instructional Growth Objective, as well as other aspects of teaching. There is no formal conference required for this observation, and the teacher is not rated on the Focus Elements for this observation. The visit may be scheduled or unscheduled.
The Formal Observation is an opportunity for the administrator to obesrve an entire lesson. This observation is always scheduled, and prior to the observation, the teacher should provide the administrator with a copy of the lesson plan for the day of the observation. The adminstrator and teacher will meet prior to the lesson to discuss the plan, and will have a second conference following the lessson observation to discuss the observer's notes, applicable student work, next steps, etc. The administrator will provide a rating on each of the 7 Focus Elements for this lesson, basd on the evidence collected during the formal observation process.
New Informal Observation Tool Available on MyPGS!
The Informal Classroom Observation tool on MyPGS provides administrators the opportunity to collect TLF-aligned evidence of teaching practice during quick, informal classroom visits. This tool can be used to provide feedback to teachers in NON-evaluative settings, with data that can be shared with the teacher difrectly on the MyPGS platform.
Stull Evaluations on MyPGS
Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, all certificated Stull evaluations previously completed on the Certificated Performance Evaluation System (CPES) will now be completed on MyPGS. All Stull evaluations will be available on MyPGS by August 14, 2018. A-Basis employees evaluated with Stull who are beginning the evaluation process now may access the traditional Stull Initial Planning Forms on the MyPGS Resources page under Stull on MyPGS Resources. Once the evaluation plans are available, all Initial Planning Forms may be uploaded to MyPGS for electronic storage and sharing.
