Liberty County School District Improves Teacher Evaluation and PD Processes

To help improve its teacher evaluation and professional development processes, Liberty County School District in Bristol, FL has selected Teachscape.

“The adoption of Teachscape – and the use of Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching – will help us move from a paper- and compliance-based teacher evaluation system to one that truly delivers quality professional development and drives teacher effectiveness,” said Dr. Kathy Nobles, director of administration at Liberty County School District. “Teachscape’s technology will streamline the overall teacher evaluation process and allow us to focus more on continuous improvement for our educators.”

The district’s administrators will receive online teacher evaluation training on the Framework for Teaching (FFT) using the Teachscape Focus observation training and assessment system. Once they pass the assessment, administrators will use the Teachscape Reflect evaluation and observation system to conduct and manage evaluations electronically. Teachscape Reflect allows teachers and observers to talk about teaching practice and to collaborate on plans for improvement.

Developed in 1996 by Charlotte Danielson, the FFT has now been adopted in more than 20 states and is used as the basis for professional learning and teacher evaluation. Teachscape is the exclusive digital provider of the FFT Evaluation Instrument, and incorporates the Framework into its observer training, assessment and evaluation management system.
