• The Professional Expectations Measure

    The Professional Expectations measure, along with classroom observations, is one of the evaluation components for 2017-18 that consider a teacher's professional practice. It gauges a teacher's responsibilities as a professional, outside of her or his instructional role. Specifically, this component considers the extent to which a teacher meets district expectations for compliance with district and school policies, in addition to the extent to which a teacher meets standard skills within several professional competencies.

     
    The Professional Expectations task was first implemented for the 2013-14 Teacher Effectiveness Evaluations, and in 2014-15 City Schools worked with BTU and a broad range of stakeholders to revise the form and develop a rubric.

    Based on feedback from teachers on which items were most meaningful, the professional expectations measure includes 16 indicators that are grouped into the following four competencies: communication, professionalism, professional practice, and district expectations. Each indicator is rated on a scale from 1-4 points.
