Full Spectrum of Evaluation Services
An efficient tool for teacher evaluations is just part of the equation. You need evaluators equipped to conduct performance assessments, mentors to guide teachers, continued professional development, and grants to secure funding for training, technology, classroom resources and more. With our roots in education, Standard For Success is well equipped to provide these additional services.
Our certified evaluators assist with observations and evaluations, providing a broader perspective and allowing administrators to focus on the day-to-day management of a school or district. By engaging external evaluations, you also eliminate any bias and ensure inter-rater reliability.
Teacher & Administrator Mentoring
SFS mentors facilitate an educator’s development by providing specific guidance on instructional practices. Mentoring sessions can occur in-classroom, in one-on-one meetings or via phone. Sessions are used to systematically provide data and feedback that can be used to improve performance. Mentoring is particularly useful in guiding and supporting beginning or struggling teachers or administrators.
SFS has partnered with Educational Impact and the Ed Leaders Network to provide schools with professional development content at a dramatically reduced rate. Even more, we can integrate it into the SFS portal, so it can be assigned and tracked right at the point of evaluation. This option helps schools stretch their budgets further by providing a more affordable alternative to off-site training, while also serving as a valuable resource for in-service days.
More on our partners:
- Ed Leaders Network (ELN), a multi-state effort to create high quality, on-demand professional development for educators. The growing ELN library currently features more than 250 webinars on the latest educational topics.
- EducationalImpact, an online professional development platform that provides on-demand access, videos of exceptional teachers in action, research-based instructional strategies and tips, plug-and-play programs and other online courses.
Technology & Instruction Audit
The success of any given technology is training on how to actually use it in the classroom. How often have you heard teachers say, “I have technology but what do I do with all this stuff?” Integrating technology into the classroom to impact student achievement is a process. The SFS team can help you ensure the dollars you spend on technology are being utilized to help teachers, administrators, support staff and students perform their responsibilities in an efficient manner.
