Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The weighting of the performance standards in the Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Superintendents is revised. In 2012, in response to federal reporting requirements pursuant to the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) and to meet requirements of Virginia’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 Flexibility Plan, Virginia was required to ensure that student academic progress (standard 7) accounted for 40 percent of the summative evaluation for teachers. As such, the Board of Education’s current Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Teachers called for the first six standards to be weighted equally at 10 percent each and the seventh standard, student academic progress, to account for 40 percent of the summative evaluation. Since the federal reporting requirement has been eliminated, these percentages are not mandated. The weighting of student academic progress at 40 percent of the summative evaluation is no longer required. The Code of Virginia requires that student academic progress be a “significant” component of the evaluation. The attached Guidelines propose that evaluation of student academic progress is met if Performance Standard 7: Student Academic Progress is not the least weighted of the performance standards or less than one (10 percent); however, it may be weighted equally as one of the multiple lowest weighted standards. Since the Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Principals and the Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Superintendents align with the teacher evaluation guidelines, revisions to these documents are also needed.
