The BTU will run the fourth summer institute for educators who are having evaluation issues. This is a week-long institute that will run from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM daily from August 3-7 at the BTU Hall. This program is designed to provide individual attention to the specific issues and prescriptions in members’ evaluations. Fellow BTU members will work with other educators to address their concerns and hopefully assist them in obtaining a rating of Proficient in the coming school year. More information will follow.
The new evaluation system has caused a great deal of anxiety and tension this year. If you are facing a Directed Growth or an Improvement Plan which could be of short duration, it would be beneficial to address the issues immediately. Reading the prescriptions in the plan may not be enough to achieve Proficiency. Take advantage of resources that are available to you to resolve these issues.
