Greenbrier Public Schools has selected observe4success evaluation software to help meet new state teacher evaluation requirements.

“We are seeing observe4succes used for both formal and informal observations and have seen teacher engagement continually rise as administrators create their own personalized rubrics," said Greenbrier Schools Deputy Superintendent Lisa Todd. "The state evaluation requirements have posed additional challenges, but with the flexibility of this solution, we have been able to fully align the platform with new state requirements.”

observe4success combines technology, research-based content, customizable observation forms, graphic reports, and peer observation and reporting.

Developed by educators for educators, observe4success started as a grassroots effort to capture and systemically report the essence of classroom culture and instructional practice so that administrators and peer observers could grasp classroom characteristics. With observation data collected over time, stored, and sorted, administrators and teachers work together to identify strengths to be highlighted and weaknesses to be supported.

“The immediate feedback has been key in the transition. Many of our principals are providing teachers with feedback before they even leave the classroom!” Deputy Superintendent Todd adds.
