INDIANAPOLIS (April 21, 2014) — This spring the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents (IAPSS) will partner with Standard for Success, an online, fully customizable educator evaluation and management software, to better conduct observations and evaluations of teachers. The IAPSS will join the Indiana Association of Schools Principals (IASP) and more than 400 schools in more than 80 school districts nationwide that are adopting and promoting technology to create a more streamlined and efficient teacher evaluation process that aligns with staff evaluation requirements evolving across the U.S.
“The Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents is absolutely thrilled about this high-quality evaluation tool, and are urging our district administrators to consider using this as they conduct observations and evaluations of building administrators and teachers,” said Dr. JT Coopman, IAPSS Executive Director. “The IAPSS Board of Directors and staff spent a significant amount of time vetting Standard For Success and other evaluation platforms and are confident that SFS provides a nice, cost-effective platform for schools to complete their teacher/employee evaluations that will enhance performance.”
The IAPSS is a non-profit, professional association serving 500+ members, including superintendents and other school administrators, professors of education, university students studying educational administration, and retired superintendents. “We’re extremely honored to earn the opportunity to work with the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents and value their input along with the Indiana Association of School Principals, who are highly regarded as two of Indiana’s premier leadership organizations,” said Todd Whitlock, Chief Executive Officer of Standard for Success. “As educators ourselves, we understand the very large and varied responsibilities of administrators and teachers. Working with the educational leadership associations allows us to continue to adapt the product to meet the schools needs.” “Our goal has always been to simplify our clients’ processes by offering a system that will aid them in being successful while ultimately making their jobs easier along with employee and student achievement increasing.” The Associations’ members will be presented with the opportunity to better meet the requirements of a more stringent teacher and principal evaluation model by choosing Standard for Success’, with its customizable web-based portal accessible via a tablet or laptop. Standard for Success’ software is completely mobile, which helps organize information electronically while also reducing paperwork.
