Practical Strategies To Communicate About Educator Effectiveness

In recent years, teaching quality has been recognized as the most significant in-school factor in student success. Principals also play a key role in teacher and student success. Understanding the importance of educator effectiveness, state and local education agencies have focused on implementing systems to monitor and support it. As new educator evaluation systems are rolled out, a strong communications plan is necessary to provide consistency, clarity, and transparency for all stakeholders.

This webinar recording offers lessons learned and practical strategies for effectively communicating about educator evaluation systems at the state and local levels. Viewers will learn how to craft clear, consistent messages and develop targeted communication strategies for multiple stakeholder groups. It features Michael Luke Kohlmoos, former educator evaluation director at the Tennessee Department of Education, and Hella Bel Hadj Amor, REL Northwest’s practice expert on the subject.
